The season of a relaxed Provençal rhythm of life takes on its full meaning from the end of August. Landscapes, listed villages, vineyards, food… Nothing is left out!

The Grape harvest season

The sun gilds the white stone of the Luberon castles. The vines of the Côtes du Rhône or the Mont-Ventoux foothills are still green. Grapes bursting with sunshine are ready for harvesting. Even though the wine is fermenting in the cellars, nothing stops you from taking a little rest to taste the wines or have a walk or horse ride in the vineyards…

The water from the fountains refreshes the rambler. From the terrace of this small café, the view over the Rhone Valley or the Luberon massif is magnificent. The Luberon cedar forest stretches out in front of you. The olive trees offer their silvery leaves to the wind. The Rhone with its changing colours runs alongside Châteauneuf du Pape and Avignon and makes its way to the Camargue.

The visits season

After the Festival de Théâtre (Theatre Festival), the Popes’ Palace lights up in the evening with the show « Les Luminessences » (Luminescence). It is so nice to stroll through the backstreets of the perched villages. Follow the guide to Lauris, Gordes, Lourmarin, Pernes les Fontaines, Vaison la Romaine… A collegiate church, an ancient theatre, a tower from the Middles Ages, a synagogue, all the history of a land is told to you.

... And the rendez-vous for food lovers

You have an appointment with a generous land. The taste craftsmen produce Muscat, olive oil, white bread, truffles, honey… And to take everything in, the local produce festivals already tickle your taste buds!
