Bonnieux, typical village of Provence
Nestled on the side of a hill and dominated by the steeple of its old church, perched 425m above the valley, Bonnieux is one of the most beautiful villages in the Luberon.
Former pontifical city, the village benefits from a magnificent belvedere offering a view of the whole country of Apt and Ventoux, and of the magnificent different sunsets each evening.
The Luberon never ceases to amaze with its interplay of colors, its very special light and its natural riches. Discover sumptuous panoramas, the vast plains planted with vines, lavender, olive trees and cherry trees, the gentle hills carpeted with holm oaks and the paths lined with dry stones.
Colorful landscapes Roussillon and Rustrel
With its famous Sentier des Ocres, its Conservatory of Ocher and Color, and its facades coated in the traditional way, Roussillon, one of the most beautiful villages in France, is distinguished by its shades of yellow, orange and red colors which give it confer a particular charm.
In Rustrel, the Provençal Colorado is also an unmissable and breathtaking site in terms of color palettes, flora and relief. You will discover there grandiose sites sculpted by the elements and the hand of man.
Source of inspiration for many artists Fontaine-de-Vaucluse
Fontaine de Vaucluse is one of the most visited natural sites in the region. And for good reason, the village is home to a very impressive spring which gushes out at the foot of a 230m high cliff, sculpted by erosion, and which represents the most powerful fountain in France (fifth in the world). This enchanting place offers emerald-green bodies of water shaded by huge centuries-old plane trees, landscapes dotted with caves and valleys. You can walk along the river, on its green banks, or taste the joys of canoeing for an 8km descent of the Sorgue.
The “Giant of Provence” Mont-Ventoux
Much appreciated by cyclists for its ascent and its extraordinary landscapes, Mont Ventoux reigns over Provence from the top of its 1912m altitude. Nicknamed the "Giant of Provence", it offers from its summit an exceptional panoramic view of the Rhône Valley, the Baronnies and the Vaucluse plateau. Like its different landscapes depending on the height you take, its flora is extremely varied: more than 1000 species of plants cover it.
