Gargas : the Luberon on the nature side
Straddling the departments of Vaucluse and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, the Luberon offers a diversity of landscapes, natural environments, between crops and forests, perched villages and isolated sheepfolds, plateaus, valleys and hills… Walking through the Park, you will be able to observe more than 270 different species of vertebrates (birds, reptiles, fish, mammals…). Ornithology enthusiasts can notably spot the Jean-le-Blanc circaet, Bonelli’s eagle, the great horned owl or the Egyptian vulture. The Luberon nature side can also be discovered by taking the Voie Verte du Calavon (Green Way of the Calavon). The villages are both picturesque and authentic, and five of them are part of the selection of the most beautiful villages in France: Ménerbes, Gordes, Lourmarin and Roussillon, Ansouis.
Many museums welcome you to the Vaucluse, and many will please the whole family. You can discover the Jean-Henri Fabre museum in Sérignan-du-Comtat, the Calvet museum in Avignon, or the Donadeï de Campredon museum in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue…
