Luberon : the most beautiful region of the Provence

Without doubt the Luberon is one of the most beautiful areas in the south of France. We are sure that once you learn more about the region, you will share our passion for the 'relaxed rhythms' of Provence, and will make it your number one holiday destination.

This region, with its 300 days of sunshine, shows you a different facet of its charm every season. In the spring you will see wild meadow flowers and beautiful tree blossom; in the summer you will enjoy sultry temperatures and the background chorus of the cicadas, in the autumn you will see the rich gold, brown and red hues of the vineyards and the forests, and in the winter you will enjoy the peace and quiet under a clear azure blue sky.

By all accounts, this region has the purest air of Europe. Unesco classified the Luberon as a nature reserve for its rich fauna and flora. These 120.000 hectares of 'Parc Naturel Régional' (since 1977) extends in the 'Haute-Provence'. The Limestone Mountains, with a length of 65 kilometres, go eastward from Cavaillon to Manosque. You can only cross this mountain chain through the Lourmarin-vale, which divides the 'Petit Luberon' from the 'Grand Luberon'. The Mourre-Nègre (1125 meters) is the highest point of the Luberon. From the summit you overlook Digne, Mont Lure and the valley of the Durance, the reservoir by Apt, the 'Etang de Berre' and the Mont Ventoux. This virgin area is ideally situated for walking or cycling. It offers a beautiful network of walking routes; three GR's (4, 6 and 9), and a cycling-route of approximately two hundred kilometers runs through the 'Parc Régional' using a network of quiet small roads through Cavailllon-Apt-Forcalquier.

There is no short of traditional villages to visit where the passing of time has barely had any impact on the local culture and pace of life: Oppède-le-Vieux, Ménerbes, Lacoste, Bonnieux, Joucas, St-Saturnin-lès-Apt, Lourmarin, Saignon, Caseneuve, Roussillon, Joucas, Gordes, Goult, ... they all have their own character. The region is ideally situated as a base from which to explore the district around the Mont Ventoux, Orange, Avignon and Aix-Provence. Within a 1-hour drive you are in the Camargue or at the Mediterranean Sea. And a little further on you can discover the 'Gorges du Verdon', the Alps, ...

When you say 'Luberon' (Provence), you think automatically of the delicious Provencal cuisine. You will find daily fresh products on the markets in the Luberon. The Provencal people take every opportunity for a leisurely aperitif of 'pastis' and toast with 'tapenades' (olives, aubergines, anchovies). The entrées vary from a salad with hot goats' cheese, 'ratatouille' to melon with port, the main courses range from duck, lamb to fish (seawolf), and afterwards a choice of different cheeses. They finish every good meal with a small coffee (un petit café). With every meal you can expect a bottle of water and, for something stronger, you will be spoilt for choice with an extensive list of local and regional wines.

This area is an ideal holiday region that offers you the chance to relax and daydream under the Provencal sunshine, and to feel the stress drain away from your hectic life!
