At the crossroads between the Rhone and Durance, dominated by the Mont Ventoux, Carpentras is housed in the shelter from the mistral in the rich and fertile plain of Comtat Venaissin, a landscape-like Italian campaign where dotted with beautiful villages that are warming the midday sun. The location near major highways, makes it an ideal base for its quality of life, land and ancestral know-how, an exceptional environment in the heart of unspoilt nature and rich heritage left by the presence popes during five centuries.
"A Carpentras, quiet city and is the mistral farandole
His dance tunes Comtadine under the old plane trees
Watching the Mont Ventoux? "Pierre Vaussais - Fall 80
