Le Luberon, France

Still in Provence, this time a bit further to the north is an area called Le Luberon. It’s a beautiful place of nature with some cute, old villages and castles.

I started this big day with the with a visit of the Silvacane Abbey, a former Cistercian monastery, which is located near La Roque-d’Anthéron. Then I continued my way into the natural park area of Le Luberon. I started in Lauris and continued with a long stop in Lourmarin which has a medieval castle and beautiful historical old town which is very much worth to walk around a bit longer. Next stop was Cucuron where I walked up to a viewing tower. Lucky me there was an exhibition of watercolor pictures going on and the artist opened the window for me so that I could take awesome pictures overlooking the village. Without this kind guy those great pictures would not have been possible. Last stops for the day, before heading back to Aix En Provence were Cadenet & Ansouis.
