Very neat to walk around the city at your own pace, not crowded and a hidden gem. Nice pathways with splendid views. Great restaurants and the new lower city, still very old is just steps away

One of my favourite places. A beautiful town, lots of history, not too pretentious and the surrounding scenery is exceptional.

If you are in the area then please visit this town. Regardless of your interests, I am sure that you will have an enjoyable time.

The market (Tuesday morning) is also the best that I have visited. Get there early though as it can get busy.

I would willingly move there to live. Finger’s crossed for a lottery win.

We arrived in Maison la Romaine on a guide book suggested tour of the Dantelles. Earlier we had thought that from a map, this looked like a good place to take a picnic and eat down by the river.

Impossible!! The river was about 10 metres down from the road and bridge unless one took a complicated route to get to a riverside car park. But that was our fault for not being able to find the correct information earlier.

We walked across the bridge from the new town to explore the old (Roman) town. Another fascinating place and well worth the stop

The chateau at the top of the hill is not worth the climb unless you are looking for views. The chateau itself is in ruins and fenced off. It must be said though that the views from the top are excellent and quite clearly this is why the chateau (probably a fortress in earlier times) was place there.

We easily parked and followed the people to the market. They had all the usual tablecloths, napkins, hand towels, soaps as well as tons of foods.
The website Marches-Provence.com tells you the market days.

We stayed about a ten minute drive from Vaison la Romaine so visited several times for various reasons. It is a busy & vibrant place with lots going on. The Tuesday market was a great experience but we learnt to get there early eg about 8am to avoid the significant crowds. We also visited for the Vide Grenier which had stalls dotted throughout the old quarter and to see the Roman ruins. The old part of town is very beautiful with lots of wonderful architecture & views. We parked at the car park by the roman bridge. Spaces always available (including early Tuesday morning).

Stunning place. Like many other places the Romans were here first. Wonderful old medieval quarter, attractive town square, lots of places to eat, excellent wines (providing you know what you are looking for), great markets and within a short driving distance of more small villages than you can poke a stick at. Our unit was fabulous - about 10 minutes walk to the town square and an easy walk to the old quarter. An absolute highlight of our six weeks away. The coffee was a bit 50/50 at times - but that was a small price to pay for the location. We'll be back!

A lovely town with a lot to offer. Market days are really crowded so car parking can be difficult. The market meanders all around town so be prepared for lots of hustle and bustle. All sorts of stalls but be aware of prices for food items like cured sausages, olives and cheese that can be very pricey.
If you have the energy a walk up to the medieval old town is beautiful. Wonderful old buildings and magnificent views.
In the main town centre the central square is great for people watching, having a leisurely drink or a good meal.

My wife and I have been here multiple times, and we love everything about it. The great town square, the cafes, the wine, the shopping, and more. It is not too small and not too large, and close to other beautiful villages.
