Around the garden in Provence

Springtime... the Vaucluse turns into an authentic garden of colours and fragrances. From the Harmas Jean-Henri Fabre, famous entomologist, and its 500 plant species to the garden of the Château Val Joanis in Pertuis, via the Roman garden of Caumont, treat yourself to a few moments of relaxation and pure pleasure. Let us not forget the flower markets and fairswhich transform villages into massive bouquets.

 

Over the past thirty years, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue has become the capital of antiques, with many antique dealer groupings in the town. There are many galleries and shops, and a large provençal and flea market every Sunday.

 

Each two major antiques fairs are held, one over the Easter weekend and the second one on 15th August. In all over 800 exhibitors set up their wares throughout the town. The Isle-sur-la-Sorgue fairs are among the biggest in Europe.
