Between the Alps and the Mediterranean, in the heart of Provence, lies the Parc Régional du Luberon with its extraordinary variety of beautiful scenery and countless places of interest to visit. The Luberon mountain is a rugged range of hills extending over 65 km between Cavaillon in the West and Forcalquier in the East. The western end is called the Petit Luberon, and the eastern and higher end is known as the Grand Luberon. The DOMAINE DE LA GARDETTE nestles within the slopes of the Grand Luberon in perfect tranquility with sweeping views at every turn.
This is a magnificent region, rich in colour and contrast, which together with the light and warmth of Provence has attracted artists and writers for many years. Unique and lovely villages crown the rolling hills of the Luberon offering panoramic views of its wild and wooded slopes, lavender fields, olive groves and cherry orchards. There are castles and abbeys, geological and historical sites all waiting to be discovered. The world famous sites of Provence such as the Palais des Papes in Avignon, Aix en Provence, Arles and the Camargue, the vast variety of aquatic sports at the Gorges du Verdon and the Lac Sainte Croix or Cassis and its famous Calanques are all within a 60 to 90 minute drive.
The sights and scents of the renowned markets of Provence can be found in every town and village, so there is one for each day of the week. In this very sought-after region of France, wineries abound, including the famous Chateauneuf du Pape and Gigondas, complementing the vast choice of restaurants from the gastronomic to simple and delicious traditional food.
The Luberon is a paradise for walking and hiking and the DOMAINE DE LA GARDETTE is ideally situated for these activities. Cycling, horse-riding, rock-climbing on the famous cliffs at Buoux are all popular sports in the area.
The village of Cereste lies within 3 km of the DOMAINE DE LA GARDETTE and here you can find shops and restaurants, including an excellent butcher, two bakers to choose from for morning croissants, and the popular Scaramouche glacier artisanal which produces tempting home-made ice cream, a pharmacy, a bank, a post-office etc. The village also boasts a sports complex with tennis courts.
