A Saturday Drive across the Rhone for Brocantes and Markets

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

Not every day starts with blue skies & sunshine in Provence and Saturday was one of those days!

When we woke, the rain was drumming on the roof and the whole place just looked soggy, so any thoughts of a bike ride went out of the window and we quickly decided on Plan B, which was to pop across The Rhone and take a look at the brocante market in Villeneuve-Les Avignon for the morning.

…Continue reading here for some background on Villeneuve-Les Avignon and its history with Fort Saint-Andre and an important monastery. The sun came out in time for Julie’s exploration of this Saturday brocante market that takes place near the Chateau.

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
