Concierge.com's insider take:

This is that small French town you always dreamed of, a mix of pristine Beaux-Arts and medieval buildings set among plane trees with peeling bark. Arriving from Les Baux or Avignon via one of the most romantic and gorge-filled drives in France, visitors find a ringed boulevard that holds a maze of about a dozen medieval streets chock-a-block with artisanal textiles, olive oil, wine, cheese, and sausages. The outside ring, which changes its name from Boulevard Gambetta to Victor Hugo to Boulevard Marceau, has two of the world's greatest gourmet shops. Olives Huiles du Monde sells a range of award-winning, locally produced olive oils and truffle products. Joël Durand Chocolatier's offerings go way beyond his delicately infused chocolates to include pots of crème caramel and sweets flavored with local olives and almonds. After a stop by these two temples, head down to the Bistrot d'Eygalières some 15 km south for one of the most rewarding meals on offer in Provence or anywhere.
