Luberon Natural Park

The Luberon is a range of mountains stretching 65km/40mi from Cavaillon to Manosque. The Petit Luberon in the west and the Grand Luberon in the east are separated by the beautiful Combe de Lourmarin which runs through the mountains from Bonnieux to Lourmarin.

In order to protect this magnificent unspoiled terrain the authorities created the Parc Naturel Regional du Luberon in 1977. It covers about 140,000 ha. mostly in the Vaucluse. although some of the Park is in the Alpes de Haute-Provence.
