Beautiful and trendy

The Vaucluse is an inland department of the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur region. It is home to just under a half a million people. The department contains some of the most picturesque villages and unspoilt countryside that southern France has to offer. As a result, the departmental capital of Avignon and the cosy town of Orange are now considered to be very trendy holiday destinations amongst both foreigners and the French themselves.

Anyone for antiques?

Inside Avignon's superbly preserved ramparts you will find a city teeming with history and culture. A stroll through the old lanes of Avignon is a delightful experience and will open your eyes to the wealth of fascinating architecture the city has to offer. If you'd like to take a piece of the city's history away with you then pay a visit to one of Avignon's many antique dealers where you might find a suitable memento.

View form the ramparts

From the top of Avignon's ramparts you will be able to take in the spectacular views over the Rhône Valley. From here it is easy to appreciate the town's strategic significance and its command over the surrounding region.

Orange - a formidable setting

The town of Orange is located in the northern Vaucluse, amidst a formidable landscape. This is an area dense with lush vegetation, looming oak and pine forests and towering mountains. Orange produces a large amount of honey and wine as well as a number of other gastronomic delights.

A colour shared

The town's name reflects the fact that the majority of the town's buildings are distinctly orange in colour. In 1530, Orange began to lend its trademarked colour to Holland, Northern Ireland, The Orange Free State and Orange, New Jersey. At around the same time, the German House of Nassau took over the town. During the Reformation, the ruling House of Nassau became Protestant and the town became the destination of choice amongst the Catholic Church's dissenters. William of Orange, who led the struggle for Dutch independence belonged to the Nassau dynasty and was also known as William of Nassau.

Beauty and celebrity in Luberon

In the south of the Vaucluse you will find Luberon, a highly celebrated area rich in quaint villages and magnificent castles. It is the home of a number of French personalities. It is also here that Peter Mayle spent 'A Year in Provence'. The area is famed for its dense forests and beautiful nature reserves.

How to get there

Avignon airport currently has direct flights to/from the UK. For more options, Nimes and Marseille are also within reach. However, it is just as easy to reach either of these latter destinations by train as the fast and comfortable TGV train service stops in both towns.

Vaucluse property prices

Villas in this department are very popular and so come with rather high price tags. The increased popularity of the area means it is often difficult to find any bargains or properties that need renovation.
