So, do not hesitate, and take advantage of the opportunity to rest under the blue sky of Provence, in the Luberon, discover Les Ocres, a land that will remind you of the Wild West, or visit the famous City of the Popes, Avignon! Get your tissues, we will tell you the beautiful and nostalgic story of the South!
The cicadas, the lavender fields stretching as far as the eye can see, the hills and the massifs, the mild climate, villages that are straight out of another era, out of the novels of Marcel Pagnol will make you dream? Well wake up! Luberon does exist. And this massive natural heritage of great wealth, is protected as a Regional Natural Park. You can walk there or ride a bike and contemplate the diversity of the sites: geological diversity (lawns, plateaus, cliffs, gorges, plain); plant diversity (cedar forests, pines, oaks, scrubland); biodiversity with 1,800 species of plants and over 2,400 species of animals (birds, butterflies). And of course, many other activities will seduce you in the Luberon: gastronomy, including the tasting of Borie wines, the very private residences of artists and the famous unique villages.
Do you want raw, authentic, landscapes straight out of movies? Here again, Vaucluse is for you. With its beautiful ocher earth, it will remind you of the old cowboy movies. The ocher paints the Luberon with so many shades: red, yellow, orange, green and purple. And this land of quality has necessarily encouraged the development of art and crafts: pottery, painting, architecture, decoration ... At the heart of the Ocher, you will learn more about the use of this natural pigment through the Ocher and Colors Conservatory but also on its industrial impact at the Museum of Industrial Adventure; you will discover the mines of Bruoux, an extraordinary cathedral built in stone; you will believe yourself in Colorado by admiring the cliffs and natural sites with strata of various colors.
On the Pont d'Avignon, we do not necessarily dance (unless you feel like it) but we admire the local architecture. Avignon indeed has an exceptional architectural heritage: The Palace of the Popes, home to no less than nine of them, Notre-Dame des Doms, a sumptuous church, and the famous Pont St Bénézet which is half overlooking the Rhone. The city did not earn its title of City of the Popes without history: it was a high place of pilgrimage between Spain and Italy. But Avignon is also the capital of Côtes du Rhône and the French theater with two festivals of national renown: Avignon Off and the Avignon Festival.
