If you like pretty French fountains, the town of Pernes-les-Fontaines in the Vaucluse region of south-eastern France could be the perfect place to visit. As its name suggests, this is the fountain town and boasts more than 40 ancient fountains, most of which were built in the 18th century. Several of them have been declared as historical monuments, and there’s a trail that takes you around to see as many as you can. Fountains aside, the medieval town of Pernes les Fontaines is a delightful place to walk around. There are some beautiful town houses, churches, rampart remains and some lovely little museums, including the Museum of Comtadin costumes – dedicated to dresses and period costumes. For a spot of al fresco dining, there are some lovely park areas alongside the Nesque River, which runs through the town. The wider farming area is renowned for its grapes, and there’s an excellent sparkling wine, produced here, which is the only bubbly wine in the Vaucluse.
