Le Luberon

Jagged mountains meet endless pastures and beautiful architecture.

The larger of the two main National Parks in Provence, the Luberon offers a mixture of open plains full of lavender fields, vineyards and olive groves, sharply contrasted by the stony hilltop villages and jagged peaks of the region. With so many unique villages, towns and sites, there is plenty for the whole family to explore in the Luberon. Cycling fans can head to the famous tour stage at the Mount Ventoux, whilst literature buffs can retrace the steps of 'A Year in Provence.'
