Not to be missed:

Apt: big city in the heart of the Luberon. Do not hesitate to go around the ramparts and stroll through the alleys of the old town. Enjoy also St. Anne's Cathedral, the Royal Chapel and its treasure, discover the Maison du Parc du Luberon and the Clock Tower.

Rustrel: small village leaning at the foot of the Albion plateau and deserves a visit for its famous ochre cliffs also called Provencal Colorado (attention access to colorado is prohibited by bike). Dominated by a recently restored 17th century castle, the village produces a famous wine from the Côtes du Ventoux.

Villars: pretty little flowery village wraps up on the top of a small hill. Here harmoniously blends architecture and nature: you are in the land of ochres.
