Many of Vaucluse’s attractions are close to Carpentras, so it is a great place to base yourself while you are in town. Two attractions that should be on every visitor’s to-do list is the fascinating Carpentras Synagogue and the much-loved Palais de Justice. Two other interesting attractions close by Carpentras are Cathedrale St-Siffrein and the Musee Juif Comtadin.
One of the nicest ways to experience the natural environs is to book a round at one of the area’s popular golf links like the Grand Avignon Golf in Vedene.
For those without kids, there are some great places to relax, including Chateau Fortia in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the Chateau de Vaudieu and the Caveau du Gigondas in Gigondas.
After a long day enjoying Carpentras, rest up in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. The Novotel Avignon Nord, Sorgues, the Auberge de Cassagne & Spa, Le Pontet and the Premiere Classe Avignon Nord - Le Pontet are just some of the best places to stay while you are enjoying this special area.
