On this page, I’m not going to turn into a guide of the region, but you can find tourist info here and there. No, what I offer you to do here is to share your own experience : discoveries and unique places that you have encountered along your way.

Few simple but important recomandations…

You will find in the house an Ordnance Survey map of Apt area. You can use it to explore the paths that will lead you to Caseneuve, Viens (where you will discover amazing panoramas with a view of the Mont Ventoux), or up in the Luberon (careful with summer opening hours for the latter!). Sometimes, people gather in St Martin de Castillon to take a friendly walk up there. (You can find information about this in the “Bar de la fontaine”). Click here to discover more.

Know that close to the village there are gorgeous sites such as the “Provencal Colorado” of Rustrel, the ochre mines of Bruoux, the village of Saignon and it’s gorgeous view towards the plain of Apt… You ought to spend a few hours during the night looking at the stars in St Michel l’Observatoire, a splendid site that will make adults and children dream (book in advance!)
