The Colorado Proveçal


A little air of the United States but we are well and truly in Provence, in Les Ocres de Rustrel. In the heart of the Luberon massif, the Colorado Provençal is a small nugget of the Roussillon region offering landscapes that look like a Grand Canyon. This site with the colors of the Far West was at the same time shaped by the work of the man, the ocriers and by the natural erosion. Only half an hour from the residence, you will discover a cameo of red and striking panoramas. Several marked trails will help you discover these 30 hectares of flamboyant colors. A sublime site to discover, a change of scenery guaranteed!

Fontain of Vaucluse


At the foot of a magnificent 230 meter high cliff sculpted by erosion, the Sorgue River gushes out from its source in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. About fifty kilometers from Le Claux du Puits, discover this picturesque natural site in the south of France and admire its mysterious abyss and emerald green waters. In the Luberon valley, between Avignon and the Fontaine du Vaucluse, you will find Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, a small Provencal village with a great charm. A real green setting, here everything is calm and peaceful, the walks along the Sorgue and its flowered quays, the beautiful antique stores lining the canals, as well as the pretty paddle wheels of the river.
