Provence

Explore all that Provence has to offer: wine, food, villages, and history

 

Provence

The village of Sablet is located in Vaucluse Department of Provence France. Vaucluse, bordered by the Rhône River to the west, the Durance River to the south, and the foothills of the Alps to the east, is the smallest county in the Provence-Alps-Riviera region.

The climate in Vaucluse is Mediterranean with 2800 hours of sunshine a year. The Mistral (the dry cold wind that blows from the north through the valley of the Rhone River to the Mediterranean Sea) enhances the luminosity which Vaucluse is famous for. Life in Vaucluse has been shaped by centuries of history: the Romans in Orange and Vaison la Romaine, the Popes in Avignon; all left behind a rich heritage. 

 
 
 
 

Vaucluse

Vaucluse is the region which embodies most of what is associated with Provence – from the lavender fields, sunflowers, olive trees and vineyards to the perched villages of the Luberon and Haut Vaucluse to the majestic summit of Mont Ventoux. Vaucluse is one of the top producers of grapes, melons, and cherries in France. It is the number one producer of truffles.

markets

Somewhere in the Vaucluse, every morning of the week, in every kind of weather, there is a market day. Almost every town has at least one market day a week. Markets, which typically start at 8 a.m. and end around noon or 1 p.m., normally spread throughout the center of town, often in the middle of streets. Our favorite is the Tuesday morning market in Vaison la Romaine. Take a large, flexible but strong basket - you never know what you will find.

 
 
 
 

Wine Villages

The great diversity of landscapes is one of the first things that strike visitors to Vaucluse. From the peak of Mont Ventoux to the Luberon range, the high plateau around Sault and the rolling hills of the Monts de Vaucluse, all contribute to creating a big playground for those who want to hike, climb or cycle in Vaucluse.
