Head to Chez Serge in Carpentras for Lunch
As I told you in my last post, we went to Carpentras to visit the historical Jewish synagogue built in 1367. Since most shops and tourist sites close during lunch hour, we joined the locals and headed to our favourite restaurant. Our go-to restaurant in Carpentras is Chez Serge, located off the ring road near Allée des Platanes.
The Restaurant is owned by a gregarious sommelier named Serge Ghoukassian and has been a fixture on the dining scene in Carpentras since 1987. The restaurant is in a former village house. We usually order from the 3-course “La Formule du Midi” selections which are presented on l’ardoise (slate), most recently priced at 19.50 Euros.

Head to Carpentras for the Sunday morning brocante (flea market). The city is known for delicious strawberries that grow nearby and there is (of course) a spring festival to celebrate the berry. Discover the Carpentras synagogue and Jewish heritage in the region.
