The Comtat Venaissin
Bonnieux once belonged to the Comtat Venaissin, a territory that was the property of the popes from the Middle Ages until the French Revolution. From Avignon to Valréas, from Cavaillon to Mont Ventoux, this former papal state seduces by the diversity of its landscapes, its rich soil and its particularly well-preserved historical heritage.
The Luberon Regional Nature Park
The Luberon Regional Natural Park is characterized by its remarkable landscapes. Between orchards, vineyards and wooded areas, valleys and hills, the Park offers visitors a mosaic of landscapes. Walking through the Park, you can observe just under 300 different species of vertebrates. With a bit of luck, you may, for example, spot rare birds of prey, or small birds such as the elegant goldfinch or the oak jay. Cycling enthusiasts can discover the nature side of the Luberon by taking the Voie Verte du Calavon. Among the most touristic destinations, don’t miss the villages of Ansouis, Ménerbes, Gordes, Roussillon and Lourmarin, which all belong to the most beautiful villages in France.
