Where is it? Lauris is located in the southern Luberon. It’s an hill perched village with a beautiful view on the Durance Valley. Access: D973 (Cavaillon-Pertuis) or D27 from Lourmarin.

Where to eat? Many restaurants in Lauris. Close to the old historic village, la Table de Margot, Bistrot Jeannette and in the main street, Le Pèbre d’ail, earned locals love.

What can you do there?  Stroll around the streets leading to the Castle courtyard and take time to rest and relax on the upper terrass and enjoy the nice view on the Durance valley. Maybe read a book. You can visit the Jardin Conservatoire des Plantes tinctoriales (Natural Dye Garden), labeled “Jardin remarquable”: more INFO

Go shopping! Asparagus in the downtown grocery store or famous andouillette in Boucherie-Charcuterie Pourcin. Two home-decorating stores: Paris-Lauris (at the foot of the village, next to the old railway station) and La Table de Margot (around the corner from the restaurant bearing the same name).

WALK  Stroll down the terraced gardens and see how far you can go stumbling upon antique fountains lost in bush, wild herbs and flowers.
