“"Oxygène parc aventure" - Great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Not far from the city center of Vaison-la-Romaine, on the close to the banks of the l'Ouveze river (upstream from the Roman bridge), a new "tree-top" adventure parc opened. Great fun with the kids, zip-lining from tree to tree for hours. Very well run, different levels based on age, in the shade! We could not ask for more! The kids and the adults alike loved it.

“One of the best towns to stay in Provence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Vaison has a lot of facilities and plenty happening. From the concerts in the open air theatres to the free jazz sessions in the main square, you can safely base yourself here and not get bored. The swimming pool is clean and very well run. Unless you want a pool to yourself, why pay for a villa with its own pool. Shopping in Vaison is excellent but like so much of France, it has a sense of struggling to keep its financial head above water. The weekly market is a must and some of the antique markets are great too. If you like markets.

“Tuesday Market Sensational!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This market is exquisite. Streets are filled with merchants selling rotisserie chicken, clothing, soaps, to the smallest trinkets. We ended up spending hours and lots of money on small snacks, fresh fruit, etc. You will not be disappointed with this market.
