Luxury holidays in Vaucluse
When to go
Spring and autumn see the region in its sunniest mood. Only the postcard-prettiest villages get crowded, even in summer. Winter is chilly when the Mistral wind blows.
PlanesNîmes and Marseille airports are best.
TrainsThe train is a comfortable and convenient option. Eurostar from London takes seven hours, with a change in Paris. From July to September there’s a weekly direct train on Saturdays taking six hours.
AutomobilesGreat for exploring the wine regions and the foothills of the Alps, but be careful in villages with steep narrow streets.
TaxisIt’s best to book in advance. Your hotel should be able to arrange a pick-up from the train station in Avignon or the airport in Marseille.
