Experience Market Day in a French Village

Discover an open-air market each day in a different village: in Gordes on Tuesdays, in Roussillon on Thursdays and in L’Isle sur la Sorgue on Sundays. As the markets take place in the morning only, the order of the visited sites will change accordingly. Drive along countryside roads at the foot of Luberon and arrive in Isle-sur-Sorgue. Enjoy free time to discover the antiques shops along the canals of the « Venice of Comtat Venaissin ». Go to the source of the Sorgue river visiting Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. Walk up to the cave where this impressive river emerges. Wander through the exceptional hilltop village of Gordes which ranks among the most beautiful villages in France. A photo stop at Senanque Abbey will be included between mid-June and mid-July only, during the lavender blooming season, to take pictures of the lavender fields. Continuation toward the colourful village of Roussillon and its ochre cliffs.
