The Provence region

Located about 40 kilometres east of Arles and Avignon and north of Aix-en-Provence it is above all the Luberon villages that we recommend - for it is the villages (and the surrounding scenery) that are the highlight of this beautiful region of the French countryside. The region has several villages listed as 'most beautiful villages of France'.

Although many of the Luberon villages are small each has its own particular appeal and character - and almost all are very worth visiting! The region falls in two departments of Provence: Vaucluse to the west and the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence to the east.

Luberon in the Vaucluse department

The Petit Luberon region, a 'sub-region' that includes several of the main highlights, contains many of the most visited villages within about 30 kilometres of each other, and is situated here in the Vaucluse. Some of the villages and places to visit in the 'petit Luberon' include:

The source of the Sorgue river at Fontaine de Vaucluse (not a perched village), most dramatic in spring when the river flow is at its peak but beautiful all year around, while the very popular and very visited Gordes is perhaps the most attractive of the Luberon villages when seen from the approach road.

The Luberon Regional Natural Park contains a small road that runs east to west and en-route passes by four very attractive villages - each also has exceptional views across the Luberon countryside: Oppède-le-Vieux; nearby Ménerbes, strung out along a hilltop; Lacoste, one street town leading to the castle of the Marquis de Sade; Bonnieux, tumbling down the side of a hill at the eastern end of the road.

Don't miss also the ochre mines and orange houses at Roussillon, best seen at sunrise if possible. A little way south is the ancient village of Lourmarin, also in a very attractive setting, and the small villages of Cucuron and Ansouis are nearby, and Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt is north of Roussillon


Location: Rustrel is situated in the Vaucluse department (Provence region) in the south-east of France at 54 km from Avignon, the department capital.

Popular places to visit near Rustrel: These include Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt at 8 km, Oppedette at 9 km and Colorado de Provence at 1km.

Apt is a listed 'recommended detour' at 9km and Luberon is a listed 'regional natural parc' at 10km.
