Les Felibres - Location

The Location


The house is in the Luberon village of Robion.

Robion is an active village in the Luberon with two aspects - the shops and restaurants along the high street, and the old quarter of Robion tucked away at the foot of the mountain, which is quiet and tranquil. Robion is well served with three bakeries, two butchers, several restaurants, three cafes, and a couple of grocery stores. The house is 150 metres, 2 minutes walk, to the charming old part of the village.

Walk to the end of the dead-end road and you are on the Luberon mountain with its hiking and mountain-biking trails.

The Luberon's famous hill-top villages are all within 20 minutes: Gordes, Bonnieux, Roussillon, Lacoste, Menerbes, Goult, Oppede le vieux, etc. And the towns like the antiques mecca of Isle sur la Sorgue, and Fontaine de Vaucluse, where the Sorgue river emerges fully formed from deep underground.

Within an hour are the splendid Provence cities of Avignon, Arles, St Remy, Tarascon, Orange, Aix-en-Provence, Nimes, as well as the Camargue, Marseille, and the Rhone wine trail.

If you are coming to Provence to relax rather than take everything in, there is a market every day in a different village close by. The best for local produce is the farmer's market 5 minutes away in Coustellet on Sunday mornings (April-December). And there are wineries all around where you can taste their recent offerings and buy by the bottle.

Scenes from nearby villages: Gordes, the church at Oppede le vieux, and Senanque Abbey.
