As french markets go this one is certainly reasonably large. Its tentacles spread, octopus-like, through the narrow cobbled streets of the town centre. Go fairly early and park near the new Tourist Office, which was the old station, and then walk ten minu

Veloroute du Calavon

Nice old railroad bed converted to paved trail

This is a very nice rail to trail. The only downside is that the section west of Apt has gates before road crossings that force a biker with paniers to dismount. The eastern section is better.Stops at Pont Julien and Dolmen de l'Ubac are nice stops.

OK, who doesn't love the smell of lavender? While driving up into the hills to find this place, you will smell the lavendar first. The drive is worth it although very winding. The place is a functioning lavander distillery so worth that alone. You can wat

Blachère est connu pour ses illuminations mais moins pour sa fondation qui vaut pourtant le détour. Certes le lieux n'est pas forcément très touristique mais cela vaut le détour car l'exposition est magnifique.
