  • The magical trilogy! Aiguebrun, the plateau of Claparèdes and picturesque villages. The soul of Luberon...

    « Because of my job and my passion for rock climbing, mountain biking and hiking, there are few corners of the valley that I do not know of.! And yet, I still happen to discover a unique facet. I love the wild side of the place, the beautiful rounded volumes of stones, the tails of the jackdaws, the light sectioned on the ground cover, but also the delicate presence of man at all stages of this paradise.! ». Eric Garnier, Head of Studies for outdoor sports at the Luberon RNP.

Pass a cobblestone section and continue across on the rocky path. Pass a corner on the left then turn right at the next intersection. Go up the trail that weaves through the horse paddock.
