Fields of lavender, enchanting villages and a cultural capital are just some of the reasons Vaucluse is a star of Provence
Nestling between the Rhône and the Durance, Vaucluse is the Provence of your dreams laced with vineyards and orchards, olive groves, wooded hills and lavender fields stretching as far as you can see. Cicadas sing all summer long while fountains gurgle in hilltop villages and glistening rivers meander in the valleys. Translucent light, glowing colours and breathtaking scenery have inspired myriad writers and artists, but for all its glory, this little corner of France has managed to preserve its authenticity and a charm which leaves you longing for more. True, summers are busy but wander off the tourist trail and you’ll discover remote villages and a pristine natural world.
