To many people Provence is the dream they are chasing when they think of France and for most people the dream of true Provence is that offered by the interior. Lovely as the coastline is, the real Provence is only experienced in the forests, vineyards and lavender fields of the hinterland. We specialise in properties in Vaucluse which we believe offers the very best of Provence. From the banks of the Rhône river to the west to the foothills of the Alps to the east, this is a stunning Mediterranean landscape.
Vaucluse is known for its cherry and apricot orchards which flourish abundantly on the river plain to the magnificent Mont Ventoux which stands magnificently towering over the lavender fields spread out below. It's an amazing experience to leave the plain in high summer with temperatures in the mid 30's to arrive at the top of Mont Ventoux only half an hour later, in freezing conditions and rush in to the auberge to warm up with a welcome fondue. With such a diverse landscape there is certainly something for everyone to enjoy in Vaucluse. Life takes place out in the village squares where it is pretty essential to enjoy a glass of Pastis in the region in which it was first produced. Sipping Pastis in a pavement cafe where the scent of tissane trees mingles with the perfume of lavender, you can be in no doubt that you have finally arrived in Provence. All you need to do now is to choose from the many Vaucluse properties our partner agents offer and then your dream will have come true.
For special days out it is hard to beat Fontaine-de-Vaucluse and Avignon. The Avignon festival, which precedes the Edinburgh one, is just as lively, maybe even more off-the-wall and certainly sunnier and warmer than its Scottish counterpart. For a big evening out, the opera in the open air Roman amphitheatre in Orange is a must.
Either Avignon or Marseille are the best access airports for the area and Avignon also offers the fast TGV service direct from London. Driving from Calais takes about 10 hours.
Healey Fox have four partner agent offices in northern Vaucluse covering the area from the Roman town of Vaison-la-Romaine to Nyons. Both these towns are full of interesting sights, rivers and markets and the villages around offer beautiful architecture, but then everything would look beautiful in the climate of the south of France, 300 days of sunshine each year, what a treat.
