Tourist service in Apt :

From Pays d’Apt and its bustling plain, this itinerary goes up onto the heights of the Monts de Vaucluse. This massif is still little known, and is filled with diverse and varied landscapes: natural spaces with food-producing farming, hilltop villages with dry stone buildings, from ochres with radiant colours to the lavender fields... It’s a journey between farming culture, agriculture and expertise, a tour immersed in the Luberon and all that makes up its past, present and future.
