This compact, medieval Provençal town is built on five islands in the Sorgue River, whose source is a spring at Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. This lovely town is worth visiting for its Venetian-style bridges, canals and ubiquitous waters, but it is also home to a sprawling market on Sundays. Here you will find mostly local produce, meats and cheeses, though there are vendors selling typical Provence-inspired wares – tablecloths, antiques, soaps, etc. As you cross the Sorgue River and shop in market stalls alongside giant moss-covered water wheels, you’ll be glad you stopped in this little town.
