Wherever you should happen to find your Luberon accommodation, you're only a stone's throw away from something unforgettable. From resplendent hilltop villages with sun-kissed roofs, bustling country markets and fabulous restaurant to hiking trails, terraced fields, cherry orchards, vineyards and bicycle circuits, Luberon will offer experiences unique to the Provencal region of France.
The perched villages dotted about the national park, rustic nooks enclosed between the Cavalon and Durant rivers, have been enchanting travellers for millennia. Twenty-six of these small, splendid hilltop villages, among which the famous Gordes, Menerbes and Roussillon, serve to immerse visitors into an atmosphere boasting the 'art de vivre' characteristic of Provence. Leave your Luberon holiday rentals at dawn and explore these marvellous sights by day. The spectacular views from the village of Roussillon from the Chausee de Geants, built atop an ochre mine, with its rusty-hued Sentier des Ocres, the beckoning lavender scent of the Senanque Abbey grounds, the cathedral-like Mines de Bruoux galleries of Gargas, the medieval dwellings of Village de Borries, the palatial Chateau de Lourmarin and many other cultural gems eagerly await your visit.
Luberon holiday rentals bring you closer to the sightseeing jewels of the region. Explore a realm of mesmerizing colours at the Conservatoire des Ocres et de la Couleur, meet the artists of Rousillon, and have a titillating wine-tasting tour at the Domaine de Chantegrillet. When in Gordes, visit the Musee du Verre et du Vitrail, and marvel at the stained-glass masterpieces scattered within and outside the colourful museum walls. Dine at some of the most reputable local restaurants and return to your Luberon accommodation by night, so that none of these exciting sights will go unexplored you on your holiday.
