With its spectacular Mediterranean countryside with vineyards, orchards, Medieval villages, and fragrant flower fields, Luberon may be France at its best. Visit local markets with fresh produce and learn how fragrant lavender, typical of this region, is farmed and used.

Authentic Provençal ambiance awaits in the enchanting villages perched on sun-kissed hills in the postcard-perfect countryside of the Luberon region. Enjoy a scenic drive through Lourmarin and Bonnieux on your way to a local market. Browse stalls packed with fresh produce in either Roussillon (Thursday) or L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (Sunday).

Once you've witnessed how locals barter for good deals, venture deeper into Provence. Take advantage of the perfect light—no wonder Cézanne and Van Gogh both found inspiration here—and get your camera ready. Gordes, Oppède le Vieux, and Ménerbes are among France's most enchanting villages, perched on rocky hills, providing a splendid backdrop for your photo stops.

Drop by the Lavender Museum in Coustellet (closed in January) to try an exclusive line of natural cosmetics made from the fragrant essence and oil of the region's most famous flower. You can optionally enter the museum's exhibition for an extra fee. Marvel at the magical full bloom (in season between mid-June and mid-July) of lavender plants at the 12th-century Sénanque Abbey.
