Let it be said, straddling two departments (Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and Vaucluse), the Luberon is a small jewel. This tiny little piece of land breathes the exception. It is because the Luberon has long remained away from modern revolutions. Here, men had to fight against a mischievous nature that played with their cultures, their patience, made them solid and ingenious. It is all these generations that give us a harmonious landscape where the large farmhouses (and we think of pronouncing the "s"!) are scattered in the rows of vines, lavender or cherry trees, sometimes overhung by perched villages (Bonnieux,Lacoste...). A landscape where small roads are as many veins that criss-cross the hills, the forests. We follow the paths that cross the garrigue, the wall of the plague that reminds us of the fear and madness of men. The villages and small towns,Apt,,Lourmarin, Manosque,Cavaillon, ,and its ochre path..., have all kept their soul, their colours. Here, there are no buildings but dry stone houses (don't miss the village of the bories), plane trees and hackberry trees under which you can taste the fruit of the delicacies of all the local producers... and they are numerous and talented. So take a break.... Accept this rhythm a little different where the hours do not have the same flavor, the eyes shine and the speech sings.

The must-see places in du Luberon

When to go to dans le Luberon?

When to go to the Luberon? The mild climate allows you to enjoy this territory outdoors all year round, except when the winter mistral blows that freezes your blood. The high tourist season in the Luberon is of course summer: the village markets are the most interesting. However, there are many tourists, prices are rising and the stay quickly becomes very expensive. The Luberon region is also a very gourmet destination with renowned chefs, divine specialities, salty or sweet versions, and typical local products. Here we celebrate olive oil, truffles, wines and a whole art of living that tourists are invited to taste all year round, during short and thematic stays. One thinks in particular of Cavaillon at its melon fair at the beginning of July

Finally, winter is also interesting for the strong regional traditions: the thirteen desserts and Christmas markets, which are nothing like the markets in the north. In particular, you will have the opportunity to attend the living nurseries in the region
