Les Vallons - Location

The Location


The village of Cucuron, 2.5km away, offers many delights, from the medieval rooftops to the weekly market.

The house is in countryside 2.5km from the lovely village of Cucuron. Cucuron combines fantastic looks, medieval history and charm with all the amenities you need: bakeries, butchers, grocery store, bank, cafes and restaurants, and even a Michelin-starred restaurant (La Petite Maison).

At the centre of the village of Cucuron is its huge water basin surrounded by centuries-old plane trees, which you may remember from the film 'A Good Year'. This is where the weekly market takes place, and is also home to restaurants and cafes.

Cucuron is surrounded by vineyards and stunning Provence countryside, with the Luberon mountain on its north side. It is very close to other beautiful Luberon villages - Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Ansouis, Cadenet, La Tour d'Aigues - and 35 minutes from Aix en Provence to the south.

The villages of the northern Luberon are reached through the cut in the mountain from Lourmarin to Bonnieux, giving you access to Gordes, Roussillon, Lacoste, Menerbes, Goult, etc. as well as the pictureque towns of Isle sur la Sorgue and Fontaine de Vaucluse.

Marseille is the nearest international airport, 1 hour away.


Two other great villages within 15 minutes of the house: Lourmarin (left) and Ansouis (right).
