Every day is a new adventure!
Let yourself be tempted by cycling with this route around the Luberon massif, signposted in both directions. It gives you the opportunity to gently discover all the resources of this exceptional territory.
The route takes you through the many hilltop villages, bories, castles, monuments, but also humble buildings: washhouses, fountains, chapels...
Cliffs and scrublands, ridge lawn, gorges, cedar forest, ochre cliffs... so many different environments and atmospheres grouped on a perimeter of 60 km by 30. The route takes small roads that have been chosen for the beauty of the sites and villages that will welcome you at your stages. Although they are generally not very frequented, you will have to share them with other users. The relief that characterizes our landscapes is sometimes embellished with slopes that are not always gentle. Be aware that they are generally short and take the opportunity to enjoy the walk ashore.
A tour of the Luberon full of flavors!
Witnesses of an art of living that is also combined in handicraft products, wines (AOC Côtes du Luberon and Côtes du Ventoux, Coteaux de Pierrevert) as well as in gastronomy (candied fruits from Apt, goat cheese, honey, olive oil, fruits and vegetables...); peasant markets or weekly markets are the meeting places and the high points of this local life.
