Saint-Maime: the Luberon between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea
The establishment of the Luberon Regional Natural Park is explained by the variety of its territories. Between vineyards, orchards and forests, valleys and hills, the Park offers visitors a mosaic of landscapes. As you walk through the Park, you can admire just under 300 different species of vertebrates. Bird lovers can spot rare birds of prey such as the Egyptian vulture or Bonelli’s eagle, or smaller birds such as the spring wagtail. On the nature side, the Luberon can also be discovered by taking the Voie Verte du Calavon. The Luberon is also famous for its pretty villages, which await you around Saint-Maime.
