During our 12 days in Provence we stayed at a farmhouse apartment just outside of L’Isle sur la Sorgue. We visited 18 towns and villages. Here are some pics
L’Isle sur la Sorgue is like an island on the Sorgue River because there are so many streams running around and through it. Many of the ancient waterwheels are spinning. It’s also known for its superb farm market or marche and its antique shops and weekly flea market.
Velleran is next door and also has a popular daily food market. It has a superb artisan patisserie too
Roussillon is the most colorful town because it mines ochre and uses its various colors to paint and plaster.
Menerbes is a small town in the hills and was made famous by Peter Mayles who wrote A Year in Provence.
Seguret is a quiet town near the Domaine de Cabasse winery where we stopped to sample!
We passed through the darling tiny town of Sablet which means sand, on to Gigondas , a lovely and popular town well known for its wineries. We sampled a few in the main square at Le Caveau au Gigondas.
Le Crestet is a tiny town up in the hills with great views!
Suzette is even smaller and way up in the hills near the Domaine de Coyeux winery with views of the Dentrilles de Montmirail.
More villages will be at Part 2
