Perched on the hill – castle above, river below – a fascinating medieval house in the heart of the old town with its steep streets and extraordinary heritage. If you love history and architecture it’s a treat to stay, and Martine and Julian, interesting and well-travelled, look after you well. Sleep peacefully in a big bright bedroom with a wooden floor, warm wool rug and long, romantic views. Find a large sitting room with a vaulted ceiling, enjoy generous breakfasts, wander the peaceful garden, walk or cycle endless trails. Below: shops, restaurants, Tuesday market – and one of five remaining Roman bridges in Provence.
