Encore Pouzauges et Provence - Sharon's and David's most recent trip to France

In October we journeyed back to France to stay in our house in Pouzauges for the second time. It was even better than our first trip as we had a completely furnished house to stay in. To our surprise and delight many features of the village had been enhanced – there were two new great restaurants/ cafes, many of the existing restaurants, including our favourite pizzeria/creperie Le Poulbot, now had timber terraces for summer eating built into the square and the local tourist office had a new family interactive game (with an English version) which took you around the region to medieval sites. We were taken to lunch at a mini Versailles like chateau by the French couple we met last time and also made some new French friends (even some with Australian links). One of the exciting highlights of our trip was buying another house. This one is a much larger pied-a-terre in a nearby village with views to a fortified church and a courtyard. We plan to rent it to the local French on a 2-3 year lease.

The last few days of our vacation were spent in Provence. Despite loosing our luggage for a day, we were able to still enjoy ourselves tripping around the north of the Vaucluse region. We saw village after village perched on hilltops (we liked Grignan, Le Barroux et Mornas), checked out the ski field (sans snow) on top of Mont Ventoux and visited plenty of Roman remains including the theatre antique in Orange and Vaison-la-Romaine. For the few days we stayed at Isle sur la Sorgue which is 20 minutes from Avignon and 7km from the Fontaine de Vaucluse, the source of the Sorgue river. Isle sur la Sorgue is build on the islands on five branches of the river and because of this has many waterways/waterwheels and is often known as the Venice of France. It has great antique shops and on Sundays one of the biggest and best markets we have seen in any town in the whole of France. In upcoming newsletters, we will elaborate more on the detail of our trip in further articles…au revoir!
