Provence & the Cote d'Azur - The Luberon (PDF Chapter)
This is the Luberon chapter from Lonely Planet’s Provence & the Cote d’Azur guidebook.
The Luberon is a Provençal patchwork of hilltop villages, vineyards, ancient abbeys and mile after mile of fragrant lavender fields. It’s a rural, traditional region that still makes time for the good things in life – particularly fine food and even finer wine.
