at first i thought that it is really hard to find any attraction or even open restaurants/cafes/bars during the winter months in the luberon. and then i discovered the markets are all open!
bingo!!! and this one in isle-sur-la-sorgue is even taking place on sundays, a day which is usually strictly for cooking and eating at home during the winter time in the provence.
all the restaurants and cafes around the lovely isle of a town are open. while the market is not as prolific as during the summer months you can still shop all your produce, a hat for the mistral, rotisserie chicken, lavender products and other lovely procencal items. it is great people watching and also wonderful antique shopping in any of the many stores around. you can watch the ducks floating around on the sorgue, the river which encircles the old town, visit one of the charming local wine bars and therefore spend your sunday morning, noon......ahhh the provencal way of life.....even in winter, brilliant!
what a delightful day to spend a sunday morning and lunchtime, even during the winter :-)
