A big disappointment. Went to Carpentras specially from Avignon, just to see the Synagogue. It's listed as open Monday to Friday and unlike other sites there, it does not show closed on Fete days. However the Tourist Office insisted it was closed because of Ascension day. Didn't think Jews kept this Christian festival! Anyway it was a wasted visit.

We are Daan and Elvira van Dijkman, Dutch vintners in the Vaucluse, a county in the South of France. Together with our four children, we have put down deep roots there. The children go to school in the village, and like us, they have French friends. Since 1997 we make our red, white and rose wines and we offer tours and winetastings on our property, aswell as picknicks* in our vinyards. Interested in spending your holidays here? We rent out several apartments. *By reservation only
Couldn't have had a better experience, it's not possible to get better than enjoying a glass of some of France's best rose that's 100% organic, while cooling off in the shade enjoying the view of ven2 the first of the French alps. Simply serene. Come! You will not regret it, an experience to dote on! Real memory's

When my travellers ask me what to buy for souvenirs back home, I always recommend these amazing candies made by hands and used only natural flavours to make them so tasty. Besides the candies in the shop you can also buy some local produce such as "fruit confit" a sugar coated and natural boiled fruit.

But I can imagine it would be outstanding during the summer season. There were a few truffle vendors there as well.
Remember to tour through the entire town and not just stay in the pl Charles De Gaulle. There are alot more stands scattered through the streets and you may find better offers outside.

The Cathedral is a beautiful example of romanesque architecture,characterised by unified space and strong wall space. It is the biggest church in the dioceses,with anave that has six ribbed bays.
The decoration inside testifies to the great artistic fervor of the papal presence in the area. So here is what is great about this edifice : 1) painted panels of the Crowning of the Virgin
2) 15th century stained glass windows
3) precious marble Genoan alter pieces
4) gilted wood sculptures
5) outstanding wrought iron work
6) countless paintings
Tip....take a close look at the Jewish gate with work done by Blaise LecuyerIts. Its beautiful

Friday is the day for the market. The main problem is finding a parking space, so best to arrive early. Free parking at Coulée Verte or La Roseraie.
This is a market on a grand scale that takes over most of the centre of Carpentras. You need time to wander and take it all in. If you have the energy, do it twice - you'll always find that someone has the item you bought for less than you paid.
Apart from good quality fruit and veg, including juicy fresh figs,
you can buy excellent local honey, soap, lavender, perfumes and pottery.
There are olives, tapenades, different varieties of garlic, olive oils, Provençal materials as well as the usual items you might find in a well stocked market.
If you're feeling peckish there are numerous stalls offering cooked food : pizzas, chicken roasting on spits with potatoes underneath, various Provençal specialities and, this year, there was even a Japanese food stall.
Good street musicians are often to be found in the market.
There's a lot more to say - better you just go.

Construit au milieu du XVIIIe siècle, il était l'un des hôpitaux de la capitale du Comtat Venaissin. A l'intérieur vous trouverez des magnifiques Armoiries des Seigneurs de la région de l'époque.

Right in the old city, this is a fabulous and ancient wealthy person's home, full of treasures, and well worth the EURO entrance fee! If you are at all interested in Provençal furniture, interiors, tapestry, porcelain, art...don't miss this.

I spent two nights here and although my initial impression was of a rather down at heel old town I must say that walking around over two days the place grew on me. I think it has lots of history but isn't very good at presenting it
