Nestled on a hillside and dominated by the bell tower of its old church, perched 425m above the valley, Bonnieux is one of the most beautiful villages in the Luberon.
Ancient pontifical city, the village benefits from a magnificent belvedere giving a sight on all the country of Apt and Ventoux, and on the magnificent sunsets different each evening.
The Luberon continues to surprise with its play of colors, its particular light and its natural wealth. Discover sumptuous panoramas, the vast plains planted with vines, lavender, olive and cherry trees, the gentle hills covered with oaks and the paths lined with dry stones.
The paradise of antique shops and antique dealers L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue
Nestled in the heart of the Vaucluse and crossed by several channels fed by the Sorgue, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue has two nicknames that characterize it: "The City of antique dealers" and "Little Venice of Provence". The city-island is home to nearly 300 antique dealers and organizes twice a year an international fair flea market. It is an ideal destination for "bargain hunters" lovers of old objects, flea markets and art galleries. Its adorable little bridges and its large mossy paddle wheels driven by the Sorgue, its charming little streets where you can stroll, its many cafes and restaurants make it a unique little town.
Source of inspiration of 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 shelters a very impressive source which springs at the foot of a cliff of 230m high carved by the erosion, and which represents the most powerful fountain of France (fifth world). This enchanting place offers emerald-green waterways shaded by huge plane trees, landscapes dotted with caves and valleys. You can walk along the river, on its green banks, or enjoy the joys of Canoeing kayak for a descent of the Sorgue 8kms.
The "giant of Provence" Mont Ventoux
Highly appreciated by cyclists for its ascent and unusual landscapes, Mont Ventoux reigns over Provence from its height of 1912m. Nicknamed the "Giant of Provence", it offers an exceptional panoramic view of the Rhone 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.
