Highlights

 

Stop 1: Lourmarin
day1

Lourmarin occupies a superb geographic and strategic position at the tip of the narrow rocky coomb of the same name. The Château dominates the village and its church, regally enthroned on its little knoll above the velvety green meadow, surrounded by prettily landscaped green prairies scattered with cypresses, vines, and olive groves. Lourmarin is not the famoust village of the Luberon but is one of the most charming and appreciated by the locals. Lourmarin is ranked among the most charming french villages. The little streets of Lourmarin are offering a great variety of good quality shops and restaurants. Don't hesitate to ask DLX France Travel for recommendations.

Stop 2: Bonnieux
day1

Topped by its old 12th century church, Bonnieux cascades down the hillside and offers a spectacular panoramic view across the fields, orchards, and vineyards of the Calavon River valley. Another mountain range, the Monts de Vaucluse, enclose the northern side of the valley; beyond that, the scree-topped peak of Mont Ventoux rises some 25 miles in the distance. Bonnieux is an interesting blend of simplicity and sophistication. Many residents still make their living on small family farms, growing cherries, grapes, and vegetables. Many old farms and village houses have been sold to new residents or as second homes, and there are some spectacular restorations. Tourism is a very important industry in the Luberon, and visitors now come to Bonnieux from all over the world.

Stop 3 :Menerbes
day1

This superb little village is considered as one of the finest in France. Built on a hill, it is surrounded by magnificent countryside. Its rich historic past has been well-preserved, the Dolmen de la Pichouno shows that Ménerbes has been inhabited since prehistoric times. From the top of a rocky spur overlooking the Luberon garrigue and vineyards, the fortified village of Ménerbes and its castle watch over the neighbouring Most Beautiful Villages of Gordes and Roussillon. Inside, the narrow streets reveal a wealth of heritage : old houses, the town hall square with its 17C belfry and bell tower. Like many villages in the Luberon, Ménerbes has attracted several famous artists such as Picasso who used to have a house there.

Stop 4: Roussillon
day1

In Provence, set between the Luberon hills and the beautiful Monts de Vaucluse, lies the village of Roussillon, sparkling with ochre colour under the deep blue sky. Roussillon is ranked as one of the most beautiful villages of France, and is totally unique Roussillon is located in the very heart of the biggest ochre deposits in the world, and is distinguished by a wide palette of flamboyant colours. Wandering the narrow streets, stairs and squares in Roussillon opens your eyes to the beautiful natural pigments used throughout the village, and the millennium-old knowledge of how to use this generous natural gift. In Roussillon, man has long worked in harmony with nature.

Stop 5: Gordes
day1

Gordes, with its extraordinary position high on the edge of the Vaucluse Plateau and glorious views stretching over the Luberon Mountain, is one of the Provence’s favorite tourist’s spots. The pale stone houses of the pretty village cling on to the escarpment, blending perfectly with the grey-gold of its sunbaked limestone. Gordes is listed as one of The Most Beautiful Villages in France. Gordes has been able to build a world reputation for itself, yet be respectful of its past and of its traditions. It is a well-appreciated centre for numerous artistic and cultural happenings.
