Mont Ventoux

Reviewed By restandrelax84 - Detroit, Michigan

The drive up to Mont Ventoux is part of the experience.. I was in awe watching so many cyclists who use the roads to train (and presumably enjoy!). It's chilly on top so take a sweater so you can take some time to look around at the beautiful sights of Provence.

Cuisine de Provence Cooking School

Reviewed By CarinaMarais - Pretoria, South Africa

Barbara is a warm, friendly host and a patient instructor - we thoroughly enjoyed her interesting company. Our children aged fifteen and seventeen loved every minute and were so inspired by the experience that they started their own herb garden back home and cooked the entire menu again just two weeks after our return. We strongly recommend the experience and got much more than we bargained on - children who now love to cook!

Vaison la Romaine

Reviewed By Dan Constantin A - Romania

The old quarter of the town is a delightful maze of narrow streets, houses with stone walls and little shops. On a late August sunny day it is the perfect place to wonder and buy little things to remind you over long winter days. Go to the top of the hill at The Chateau and have a breathtaking view of the surroundings. On the descent, have lunch in one of the restaurants with surprisingly decent prices. One should finish lunch with an ice cream and a bottle of rose wine taking the time to fully inhale the scents of the summer and listen to the cicadas. After the long lunch, walk the streets over the river and buy some more souvenirs. By the end of the day, you will have a peace of mind to remember over the stressful days back home. Go there!

If you go to the Provence to find traces of the Roman occupation, this site is a must. you get two settlements for one admission ticket. You will see a Roman theater, Roman burial site complete with sarcophagi, residential areas, and visit a marvelous museum.

Roman Bridge

Reviewed By WineEng - Green Valley, California

If you're in the area to see the ruins in Vaison la Romaine, it's worth driving over to see this bridge. Apparently the river has flooded many times, taking out many Bridges in the area, but this one still stands and is used for auto traffic today. Amazing engineering by the Romans back two millennia. Very picturesque and worth the visit. Parking is plentiful and free very close to the bridge. Cheers!

L'Arbre a Vins

Sheltered under an old Platane tree, L'Arbre a Vins offers a selection of 300 wine from the Rhone and beyond. Every wine can be enjoyed on the outdoor Terrace, with a cheese or meat plate, and there is a permanent selection of wines by the glass. In high season you can also be guided through a wine tasting of local wines (6 euros for 4 wines or 10 euros for 8 wines) Having lived in the UK for 10 years, your host Mathieu speaks english and can fully explain the characteristics of every wine

Reviewed By Kevan K - Malaucene, France

A great and informal spot on the Place Montfort in Vaison. The owner, Mathieu, has an excellent selection of wines (including many organic) from around France and beyond (with a concentration of local Rhone wines of course). He is knowledgeable, very approachable, and his English is excellent.
My favourite thing about l'Arbre a Vin is the Friday night dinners (reservations obligatory) where you are served a main course and a dessert (no choice) and you may select an accompanying wine from the shelves of the store or by the glass at a very modest mark-up. Great fun and great food! In addition to the Friday repast you can go in at any time and have a glass of wine and a cheese/charcuterie board.
I highly reccommend this place for a drop-in drink if you are on vacation or as your 'regular' if you are a local!

Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Nazareth

Reviewed By johnhouston2 - Knaresborough, United Kingdom

Although the interior of this Cathedral is rather less impressive than most in terms of artwork etc, it is worth seeing nevertheless to take in the stark, minimalistic style of the building and tha fact that it contains stonework from Roman times.

Oxygene Parc Aventure

Reviewed By Ian R - Chagford, United Kingdom

We're never sure what to expect with the we kind of places, but we were very pleasantly surprised. Our three year old really enjoyed the mini park, and I thoroughly enjoyed the increasingly difficult circuits, right up to black, which I wouldn't have wanted to do twice!
I would imagine it gets a little frustrating if you have to wait for a while when it's crowded, but if you go out of season, you should be fine. The signage and quality of the equipement was first rate, and you feel safe at all times.
Good fun!

Provencal Cooking

My cooking classes are inspired by my love of Provence, my homeland, the land of olive trees, vineyards, Sunshine and beautiful landscapes. Therefore, come and discover the rich Provencal, culinary tradition handed down to me by my mother and my grandmother; a tradition that in its simplicity seeks to celebrate and give expression to the intense flavors and aromas of the local produce.

Reviewed By JJWLW - Virginia

Although I was the odd man out in a class with several women (including my wife), had a great time in Sabine's class. The instruction was great, the food was fabulous, and the wine from the family's own domain was the perfect complement to a great day.

This was our first ever visit to Vaison la Romaine and we needed somewhere to eat. The lady in the tourist office was extremely helpful, checked which restaurant a were open and gave up a map and directions.
The office has displays, details of the ruins etc.
An excellent start point to a visit to this ancient town
