Luberon France has been historically known for its wonderful breathtaking nature and richness in biological diversity. It has different and expansive species of plants, birds, insects, vertebrae, and bats. Its Mediterranean weather is comfortable and friendly for enjoying the outdoors with the young, the middle-aged or the elderly. With the extensive areas of hills, valleys, forests and olive groves, nature thrives marvelously here.
The city can be accessed via the airways from different cities far and beyond, or rail. Those who prefer to drive can also access the city perfectly well too. Public transport in this area is not so reliable since just a few buses are available on the main route. Renting a car in the city is a good idea too.
