Luberon Park

The Luberon Regional Nature Park is a magnificent expanse of 185,145 hectares spread between Vaucluse and the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, definitely worth a detour. Its 1000 colours will never cease to amaze, between the red of the cliffs and the ochre of typical Provençal villages. At the heart of these breathtaking landscapes, you will find hundred-year-old trees nestled in a cedar forest.

The Luberon, a UNESCO World Geopark

Since 2015, the Luberon Regional Nature Park has been classified as a UNESCO World Geopark for the protection and promotion of the earth's heritage. This distinction was awarded because of its 60 geosites, which reflect the history of geology and the relationship between man and the earth.

The Provençal Colorado at Rustrel

This geological curiosity is well worth the diversions, and you can't come to the region without stopping off at this expanse that looks a bit like the United States. In the heart of the Colorado Provençal, wander through a landscape that has come out of nowhere, with its stunning colours (red ochre and orange), sometimes in the shade of a pine forest. Let yourself be charmed by this sometimes lunar landscape bearing witness to an industrial past.

The Lubéron and its hilltop villages

While the Lubéron is renowned for its natural beauty, it also makes a lasting impression with its sublime Provençal villages. Take to the road to stop off at some of the region's many typical villages.

  • Roussillon: its ochre colour makes this perched village one of the best-known in the region.
  • Gordes: a perched village with unrivalled authenticity. Explore the Abbaye Notre Dame de Senanque, a must-see in the region.
  • Ménerbes in the heart of a wild and peaceful natural setting
  • Village des Bories: listed as a Historic Monument in 1977, its built heritage is an emblem of the landscape you will discover in Provence.
