Caumont-sur-Durance

 

The village :

Located in the heart of Provence, the small village of Caumont is located along the banks of the river Durance and near historical sites such as Avignon, Arles, Orange, Fontaine de Vaucluse and tourist places like the Ventoux massif, the Luberon mountain, the Alpilles chain. It is the perfect starting point to discover the riches of Provence.

Its heritage is rich with many traces of its Roman and Middle Ages, some of whose remains are still visible today: The Roman Garden, the walls that surround the old village since the fourteenth century, the various Chapels not to mention the famous Chartreuse de Bonpas. The latter was founded in the twelfth century. This monument, one of the most important of the village is still inhabited and can be visited, especially the Romanesque chapel (XII) and French gardens.

Caumont sur Durance is today a charming Provencal village where life is good, quiet and away from the tourist tumults of the larger cities that surround it.
