Location Type: Town
Caromb is a fortified village situated high in the foothills of the Ventoux mountains and close to the Dentelles de Montmirail, 12km east of Carpentras. Caromb has preserved some very interesting monuments within its ramparts. It is endowed with one of the largest Romanesque churches in the Vaucluse: the church of Saint Maurice, erected in the 14th century.
The fountain on the square which dates from 1749 with its 4 stone mascarons represents the legend of King Midas who was saved from dying of thirst thanks to a mysterious well found in the middle of the desert.
In the Lauron valley about 2 km away, there is a man-made lake that is much appreciated by anglers. In summer one can also swim there. Caromb apricots are very well known. So don't' miss out on the Tuesday morning market.
The local speciality is pork and white kidney beans au gratin. This dish is a meal in itself..., the locals will tell you in their inimitable accent: "cassoulet is a joke compared to this"... and they're not wrong! A bit of advice: better visit the village first and eat afterwards...
Carpentras - it is famous for it's St. Siffrein Fair - it begins on the 27th of November and coincides with the equally famous black truffle market. Excellent candied fruit, strawberries, melon, bonbons, "berlingots" and of course Cotes de Ventoux wines are all specialities claimed by the city of Carpentras.
