Joys of Cycling to Local Brocante Markets in the Vaucluse

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

Exploring Brocantes

As you have probably gathered by now we tend to enjoy spending our time in France cycling, visiting brocante markets, vide greniers and drinking coffee, with the days passing by in a blur and us inevitably falling into bed each evening tired and satisfied after the day’s activities.

There are certainly worse ways of spending our days, so you can imagine the delight when we get to do all 3 favourite things at once.

…Continue reading here for Julie’s descriptions (and photos) of the brocantes that they visit in the Luberon and Vaucluse from Menerbes to Les Beaumettes to Isle sur la Sorgue in search of home decor items for their upcoming renovation.

The only issue with scouring these flea markets and antique sales with your bicycle in tow is planning how you might get your purchases back home. Did we mention that they live at the top of a steep hill?

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.
