Discover Luberon and the most beautiful villages in France, drive along the lavender road, and admire typical provençal landscapes and lavender fields before you reach Sault, capital of lavender.
The first visit takes place in the village of Lourmarin, a charming Provençal village. The village with its famous Renaissance castle is set in the midst of olive and almond groves. As you enter Lourmarin, your muscles ease and your mind starts wandering. The plane trees form an arch over the avenue, as you walk to the heart of the village. Shaded streets and fountains welcome you, when the heat reaches its peak during summer time. Life is peaceful in the narrow Provençal streets. People take the time to live, to talk, and to relax. Nested in vineyards and olive groves, Lourmarin is certainly a must see during your visit in the Luberon area. It is a village of artists. As you stroll down the tiny paved streets, among old houses, you will notice the many artist boutiques. Lourmarin is a haven for painters, sculptors, fashion designers, and writers. No wonder it attracted Nobel prize winning writer Albert Camus.
You will reach Roussillon, one of the most beautiful villages in France perched atop an ochre rock formation called the Provencal Colorado. Free time to explore the village and the Ochre path during a 30 minute walk. Lunch in Roussillon.
