Description

The Luberon Regional Natural Park acts as the setting for the Luberon vineyards. These currently are spread over 36 villages, all situated in the south east of the Vaucluse department. Classified as Mediterranean but under the influence of a more continental climate from the Alpes and Rhone Valley. The Luberon is one of the most sun-drenched regions in France with approximately 2,600 hours of sun per year.
