Carpentras The Essential
Languishing on the banks of the Auzon, at the foot of Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail, Carpentras nestles amid the vines and orchards of the Comtat plain. The town is particularly busy on Friday mornings, when the market is held. Strawberries, truffles, wine, and home-made creations, such as boiled sweets and candied fruits make your visit a gourmet experience.
