Area

La Jassine is located in the Luberon Regional Nature Park and close
to a multitude of small, picturesque villages, as well as famous,
major cities, and other popular tourist sites.

Luberon Regional Nature Park

The Park was founded in 1977 to preserve the natural balance of the
region, improve the living conditions of the villagers, and promote
agricultural activity. There are tourist information centres,
museums, as well as hiking, biking and nature trails.

The Luberon Mountain Range is divided from north to south by the
Coomb that runs from Lourmarin to Apt. To the west the Petit Luberon
forms a plateau carved by gorges and ravines. To the east the Grand
Luberon has massive summits, the highest being Mourre Nègre (3691
ft). The northern face of the range is steep and rugged, whereas the
southern face has sunny slopes planted with various crops. One of the
characteristic sights of the Luberon are the drystone huts called
bories. Although many were used for storage, some were inhabited at
various times since the Iron Age.

Villages of the Luberon

The following is only a very small sampling of the many picturesque
villages that dot the Luberon Mountain Range, each with its own
unique charm.

Ansouis: The town is crowned by the Castle of Ansouis, which has been
the residence of the Dukes of Sabran Pontèves for over one thousand
years. The castle has a Romanesque Church and beautiful gardens.

Apt: A lively town located at the northern side of the Luberon Coomb.
It is known for its crystallized fruit, lavender essence, and
truffles. One of the most popular Provence markets is held here on
Saturday mornings.

Bonnieux: A very picturesque terraced village that has preserved its
rampart ruins. From a terrace there is a spectacular view of the
Calavon Valley extending from the perched village of Lacoste to the
villages of Gordes and Roussillon. Mont Ventoux is visible in the
background. From Bonnieux, you can visit the Cedar Forest in the
Luberon Park.

Cadenet: The ruins of an 11th century castle dominate the small town.
In the main square is the statue of “The Drummer Boy.” It represents
André Estienne, who was born in Cadenet in 1777 and served in
Napoleon’s campaign in northern Italy in 1796. During the battle for
the Arcole Bridge, his valorous drumming was mistaken for artillery
fire by the Austrians, who retreated leaving the victory to the
French.

Cucuron: A medieval village with thirteenth-century ramparts, gates,
and towers. There is a lively market on Tuesdays.

Gordes: This very picturesque village has become quite popular in
recent decades. There is a Renaissance Castle that now houses the
Vasarely Museum. Nearby there are several interesting sites. The
Borie Village is a museum of 20 restored bories between 250-500 years
old. There is also a Stained Glass Museum and a Museum of Oil Mills.

Lourmarin: Named one of the most beautiful villages in France,
Lourmarin is dominated by its Castle, which includes a 15th century
section and a Renaissance section. The unique grand staircase ends
with a slender pillar that supports a stone cupola. The terrace
offers a lovely view of the village and the Coomb. The famous French
writers, Albert Camus and Henri Bosco, who lived and wrote in
Lourmarin, are buried in the cemetery. Walking tours in the steps of
the two authors are offered by the Tourist Office.

Menerbes: A picturesque village on a promontory of the Luberon. In
1573 the Calvinists captured the stronghold and held it for five
years. The square is dominated by the town hall’s bell tower. There
is a 14th century church and the remains of a 13th century fortress
that played an important role during the Wars of Religion.

Roussillon: The village is located in a very unique site on the
highest of many ochre hills, composed of more than fifteen different
shades of ochre. The village is built of the same ochre, blending
into the surrounding cliffs. The stunning sites of the ochre cliffs
bear picturesque names like the Needles of Fairies’ Valley and the
Giants’ Way.

Vaugines: A charming little village with Renaissance buildings and a
beautiful Romanesque Church. Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources
were filmed in and around the village.

Other Major Cities and Tourist Sites in the Area (within an hour from
the villa)

Aix-en-Provence: The beautiful old capital of Provence is an elegant
city that boasts many fountains and old mansions. The Cours Mirabeau
is the wide main avenue, lined with stately plane trees and cafés. It
is the site of Cézanne’s studio and the Vasarely Foundation. The
International Music Festival is held in Aix in July and August.

Arles: Arles was a Roman capital and boasts well-preserved Gallo-
Roman ruins, including an Amphitheatre and a Roman Theatre. The
cloisters and doorway of St. Trophime remain from its time as a major
religious centre in the Middle Ages. Vincent Van Gogh painted more
than 200 works in the Provençal countryside around Arles. The
Camargue is nearby.

Avignon: The city is famous for The Palace of the Popes and the
celebrated Bridge of Avignon. It is also the site of the world-
renowned Festival d’Avignon in the summer, when the streets become
filled with actors and theatre-goers from around the world.

Cassis: This busy fishing port on the Mediterranean is a popular
place to enjoy the beach and the sea, as well as to hike along the
breathtaking ridges of the deep inlets known as the Calanques.
