Provence: Luberon & The Canyons of Provence 2021
The Luberon Park is a wonderful area, also known as the “Colorado Provencal” due to its resemblance to the landscapes of the Far West… ancient ocher-colored quarries that offer a stunning landscape and are often used as a backdrop for films. It extends from Cavaillon to Villeneuve astride the Luberon mountain, and offers nature lovers paths outlined by the geological heritage and five different ecosystems.
