Responsible tourism: Luberon self guided walking vacation in Provence, France
The Luberon is a vast area with exceptionally varied flore and fauna, outstanding architectural heritage and beautiful landscapes. The landscapes of the Luberon constitute an important element of the geodiversity of this region. One of the most remarkable is the ochre massif, which offers a landscape of cliffs and gullies, ranging in colour from dark red to gold yellow. The Park is a member of the worldwide Unesco network of Biosphere Reserves, comprising 460 reserves spread over the five continents, and was recently promoted by Unesco to the rank of a living example of sustainable development.

Provenηal cooking is often called "la cuisine du soleil" cooking of the sun. This is a richly agricultural region, and the fields and orchards of Provence provide fresh fruits (Cavaillon melon) and vegetables for dinner tables all over Europe. Melons and apples, artichokes, figs, peaches, cherries, tomatoes, courgettes, aubergines and, of course, grapes are all grown locally.
Every day, your luggage will be brought from hotel to hotel by our local transporter, who knows the area better than anybody else and will ensure your bags are transferred in a professional and timely manner. By dealing directly with local professionals, we also ensure them maximum benefits.
