Classic Provence

Walk through classic Provencal landscapes in the heart of Provence. If you do only one walk in Provence then make it this. 

You will wander through the Luberon National Park, explore honey-coloured hilltop villages and discover ancient abbeys and crumbling castles. In this, Provence’s finest landscape.

Boasting over 300 days a year of sunshine, the natural light of Provence has inspired many artists including Cézanne and Van Gogh. It is also certain to inspire you as you enjoy this walk from inn to inn through classic Provence.
