Set against red-rock cliffs, the village of Cadenet in the Luberon National Park drapes down a hill overlooking the Durance Valley. Bent around the base of the hill, this lovely little Provence town boasts wonderful little squares with charming restaurants, shops and bars, and locals very much going about their day. On a Saturday morning you’ll find a lively market. Visit the main square – Place du Tambour d’Arcole for a relaxing coffee or a spot of lunch and enjoy some of the attractive buildings of Cadenet. There may not be much of the chateau ruins left at the top of the hill, but it does have hidden passageways and caves, which are certainly worth exploring, and a wonderful view across the valley. Then there’s the lovely basketwork museum, which was prolific in the area until the late 1970s. During July to September, there’s a man-made lake offering lots of fun for all the family.
