Built on the foothills of a limestone spur, Cabrieres d'Avignon is a charming village, close to the tourist delights of Gordes, Isle sur la Sorgue and Vaucluse, yet quiet enough to have its own slow rhythm of life.
You can stroll down to the boulangerie in the morning for croissants and pains au chocolat, perhaps go for a stroll in the Cedar woods later in the day before you pay the butcher or small grocery store a visit for lunch or dinner. Nearby Coustellet has a full-size supermarket, a short drive away. Or if you don't want to cook there is an excellent restaurant in the square. If you have children, there is a playground behind the Mairie while in the Cedar woods a dancing platform, normally used for the village fetes, is an excellent place to practice riding a bike, if you're three..
There are some interesting walks starting directly from the village - you can walk over to Vaucluse, the remarkable village built in a dead end valley with a river that springs fully formed from its base - a roaring torrent that used to power the many mills in the village and in Isle sur la Sorgue.
Or in the other direction, you can walk to Gordes, passing a troglodyte olice mill on the way, a remarkable cave carved into a mill, with a vertical shaft cut through the rock through which the collected olives would be poured to make the delicious local olive oil.
By car, one of my favourite nearby places is Oppede le Vieux, a village that must have been rich, with 15th and 16th century beautiful stone houses built along tight climbing alleys going up the hill to the castle and a 12th century church.
