The Luberon:

The mountainous mass of the Luberon constitutes the first and most southerly foothills of the Alps. Stretching on a north-west/south-east axis between the towns of Cavaillon and Manosque, it can be divided into three distinct parts: the Petit Luberon between Cavaillon and Apt (these two parts are separated by the natural fault known as the Combe de Lourmarin), the Grand Luberon from Apt as far as the village of Céreste (whose summit is the Mourre Nègre at 1125 metres), finally, the east Luberon from Céreste to Manosque (the southeastern part). Most of the Luberon is situated in the south east part of the ‘département’ of the Vaucluse with the exception of the east Luberon most of which is in the ‘département’ of the Alpes de Haute Provence.

The Luberon area (pays du Luberon), consists of the land enclosed between the Monts de Vaucluse to the north and the valley of the Durance to the east and the south. These natural barriers have to an extent prevented industrial development of the area thus helping to maintain its authentic character. Much of the medieval and even Roman architectural heritage of the villages has been preserved and restored with competence and taste and there is a remarkably high concentration of villages officially classed as ‘the most beautiful villages in France’ (les plus beaux villages de France) (for example, Gordes, Ménerbes, Lourmarin…). This, combined with magnificent landscapes and an average 300 days of sun per year explains why the Luberon is one of the most popular tourist destinations among Europeans.

Discover the south of France, his charm, his gentle way of life, its historic heritage. Provence and the Luberon is a compulsory destination while traveling in Europe, a dream destination that you leave an unforgettable memory… Avignon, the capital of French popes, Aix-en-Provence royal capital of southern France, the charm of small villages in the Luberon with the impressing number of medieval castles and abbeys, the wines of Cote-du-Rhone, the Provence gastronomy, the art of the nap…Enjoy the art of living in Provence!
