The Luberon, a massif of the Pre-Alps located in Provence, borders the departments of Vaucluse and Alpes de Haute Provence. It is the land of perched villages, vineyards, castles and festivals. In summer, it attracts nature lovers to its regional nature park.
The villages perched on narrow spaces mostly date from the Middle Ages. Often spectacular to look at, they form belvederes offering magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.
The wine route : the Luberon vineyards cover 3500 hectares and 36 communes. It produces AOC Rosé, Red and White wines. If 80% of the production is directed towards the cooperative cellars, the rest is produced by private owners. The wine trail is worth the diversions.
From Lacoste to La Tour d’Aigues, the keeps and castles, intact or in well-preserved ruins, are a pretext for discovering the tormented past of the Luberon and its remarkable sites.
