Location and Map

This marker is for indication purpose only

Le Luberon covers around 600sqkm and comprises of three mountain ranges, the highest peaks are around 1,250 metres high. Most of the area falls within the protection of the Parc Naturel regional du Luberon and is rich in both fauna and flora. The scenery is sometimes breathtaking and extremely diverse and includes; pine and oak forests, lush vineyard filled valleys, rolling hills, garrigue, lavender fields [of course], a desert [believe it or not] and boasts some of the most enchanting villages in France.

From the perched hilltop villages in the Golden Triangle, including; Gordes, Bonnieux, Goult, Oppede, Lacoste, Rousillion and Menerbes, to the vibrant town of L`Isle-sur-la- Sorgue, made famous for its Sunday brocante market and antique shops. Whilst other gems include, Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, the source of the river Sorgue and the beautiful Southern Luberon village, of Lourmarin, with its lovely Renaissance chateau.

The region is famous for the quality of its wine, food and very relaxing lifestyle, which is probably the reason why so many writers, in particular, have made it either their home, or wrote so eloquently about it. From Samuel Beckett to Albert Camus, from Marcel Pagnol, who wrote, Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources, to the more recent, Peter Mayle with his evocative best selling series, including A Year in Provence.
