Luberon in Provence

Wonderful luminosity, a gentle lifestyle and warm colours ...

... engulf the Luberon ranges and the villages nestled in its hills – five are ranked as among "the most beautiful villages in France".


The villages of the Luberon such as Gordes, Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Roussillon and Lacoste Ménerbes in the south of France demonstrate the Provençal art de vivre. Sun-gilded drystone walls, ochre-washed homes, terraced fields and shady squares with gurgling fountains all contribute to the warm and gentle lifestyle which dominates here.


Artists and craftsmen hone their talents in each village.


Vineyards and cherry orchards dot the hillsides, and the plains are planted with gorgeous fruit orchards...


The Luberon is an area of lush vegetation and exceptional wildlife, which deserves to be a Regional Nature Park, which can be explored with its various routes and itineraries. Hiking paths beckon to all levels of walkers.
