Luxury Property for sale in Luberon, South of France

Are you looking for luxury property for sale in the Luberon region, France?

Made famous by Peter Mayle’s international bestseller A Year in Provence, the Luberon is Provence at its finest – and after heading back to New York for a time, the author is now back here, living in Lourmarin.

The Parc Natural du Luberon offers landscapes and scenery of tremendous beauty – from the wild mountains of the Vaucluse hills in the north to the pine-covered hillsides of the Grand and Petit Luberon mountains.

But the Luberon valley is what is often described as real Provence – as it is made up from luscious landscapes of olive groves, vineyards and lavender fields, and overlooked by exquisitely beautiful hilltop villages, with spiralling streets, multi-coloured buildings and colourful, vibrant markets.

Gordes has been crowned one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France – one of the most beautiful villages in France, and it is very worthy of this title. With an imposing Renaissance castle, set high up on the Vaucluse plateau and with a labyrinth of calades (cobblestone streets), it offers spectacular views. Not far from here is the Senanque Abbey where those seeking an archetypal Provençal lavender field will find exactly what they have been hoping for.

Bonnieux is considered to be one of the most impressive Luberon villages, with orchards and vineyards and splendid views of Gordes and Roussillon. Fortified as early as 972 AD, it is topped by a pretty church from the 12th century.

Another of France’s officially most beautiful villages is Ansouis, which is surrounded by vineyards. It is renowned for its excellent restaurants, ancient housing (dating back to the 15th century) and 1,000-year-old castle.

One fascinating sight not to miss while in the Luberon is the emerald waters of the Sorgue River when visiting the town of Fontaine de Vaucluse – named so because of the spring that feeds the river, which is one of the largest in the world.

While all the villages offer their own unique version of Provence, one not to be missed is Roussillon. Once part of the seabed, large, striking ochre cliffs make the approach to the town instantly recognisable – as is Roussillon itself, with its red, orange and yellow stone buildings. Unique and exceptional, a trip to Roussillon is an unforgettable experience.
