Heading back from L’Isle Sur La Sorgue market this week I thought I’d take the opportunity to stop at Cabrières D’Avignon and seek out a walk that I had heard about that follows some of the Mur de La Peste.

The Mur de la Peste, which ran for over 27km between The Durance and Monieux was built in 1721 with the aim of preventing ‘The Plague’ , which was devastating much of the area, from spreading into the Comtat Venaisson and on towards Avignon.

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.
