Between the Alps and the Mediterranean, at the foot of Mont Ventoux, come and enjoy Vaison la Romaine during your camping holiday, a mediaeval town which is listed as a "Ville d’art et d’histoire".
Recognised as one of the "plus beaux détours de France" (France's loveliest detours), there is good reason for the town's name. Conquered by the Romans between 125 et 118 BC, making it one of the richest of ancient Gaul, this Gallo-Roman town is home to two archaeological locations which bear witness to its prestigious past: Puymin and la Villasse. So you'll be walking in the footsteps of our Roman ancestors when you cross over its 2,000 year old Roman bridge, which separates the mediaeval upper town from the centre of the town, and you come and see this Roman town, which has been almost entirely exposed. You'll be taken back to ancient times when you visit the Maison à l’Apollon Lauré, the Maison à la Tonelle, the Sanctuaire à Portiques, the Rue des Boutiques and its splendid ancient theatre.
Surrounded by 7 hills and crossed by the Ouvèze river, Vaison la Romaine is an opportunity to enjoy all sorts of walks within some lush, multi-coloured countryside. On foot or by bike, come and try the Mont Ventoux challenge, or enjoy a picnic beside the river Ouvèze while on holiday.
And Vaison iself is great for a stroll. With its various shady squares, with their cafés and restaurants, and its shopping streets, you'll have plenty of options.
On Tuesday mornings, you shouldn't miss the big Provençal market held in the streets of Vaison La Romaine, where, among the numerous stalls, you'll find local produce and all the colours and flavours of Provence. Wines, truffles, olives, tapenade, fruit, and honey made from Provence flowers will all give your taste buds a real wakeup call!
