If you're feeling active and adventurous, you'll love the tree top/activity course, close to Lagnes, just east of L ‘Isle sur la Sorgue.  It's for anyone 18 months + and great fun and value

Village des AutomatesPicnic and relax in the shade

Village des Automates is a lovely day out, perfect for children under 10 and quite unusual, in a very French way! There's plenty of shade, parking and snacks within the 8 hectares of woodland park. Situated 12 km from Aix en Provence at Saint-Cannat.

If you want to escape the sunshine and heat for a few hours, the Caves at Thouzon are a wonderful sanctuary at constant 13c.  Everyone can marvel at the stalactites and stalagmites

Kayak Vert The slow pace of the Sorgue

Try kayaking along the cool, clear water of the river Sorgue, with shuttle bus return to your starting point, which is handy.
