The Luberon Regional Nature Park
The creation of the Luberon Regional Natural Park in 1977 was useful in view of the varied landscapes it shelters. Between cultivated and wooded areas, valleys and hills, the Park has a complex identity. As you walk through the Park, you can encounter a rich fauna of 270 different species of vertebrates. Bird lovers can see rare birds of prey, or more discreet birds such as the elegant goldfinch or the lebruant willy. The nature side of the Luberon can also be discovered by following the Voie Verte du Calavon. From Robion to Castellet, this 37-kilometre-long cycle route passes through the heart of beautiful natural sites. The villages of the Luberon are very touristic. Some of them have been awarded the label of the most beautiful villages in France: Ménerbes, Gordes, Lourmarin and Roussillon, Ansouis.
A natural destination par excellence, the Vaucluse must also be seen as a cultural destination. Several dozen museums open their doors to you in the Luberon, at the foot of the Ventoux and in the Comtat Venaissin: you can for example visit the Musée de l’Œuvre in Avignon, the Francesco Petrarch Museum in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, the mechanical music mill in Mormoiron, the Bakery museum in Bonnieux, the Requien museum in Avignon, the Jouve museum in Cavaillon…
