Located south-east of Avignon, only an hour’s drive north of Aix-en-Provence, the Luberon region offers families the perfect mix of nature, culture and french cuisine. With its great hiking and climbing options, beautiful medieval villages and the outstanding art heritage of Cezanne and Van Gough Luberon is France at its finest!
Niche Junior says
We value our kids opinions - which is why we introduced Niche Junior, giving our little travellers a platform:
When we visited theses old villages we sometimes felt like knights from the Middle Ages. We loved the crepes in the markets and the kayaking tour with our dad.

Why is Luberon perfect for families?
Luberon is the ideal place to spend a holiday with children in nature. Explore national parks, find enchanted trails with panoramic views through Atlas Cedar forests and wander through poppy-speckled meadows. For those who seek adventure, take a kayak tour on the river Sorque or visit the high ropes course of Rustrel. Afterwards take a stroll through one of the charming mountain villages pop into Cine Manouche to find old movie posters, comics and all sorts of picturesque vintage treasures and stop for a crepe or ice cream at Le Glaces du Tinel.

Where to stay in Luberon?
We´ve personally visited every one of our sustainable and stylish properties, finding the very best family hotels and villas.
Domaine Les Petites VainesGoult, France
We love: the lovingly restored provencal farmhouse from the 18th century, furnished in contemporary boho style with three delightful cottages. The warm welcome and nice and peaceful atmosphere with olive and pine trees and a swimming pool from where you can hear the sheep’s bell ringing…
Domaine De FontenilleLauris, France
We love: the intimate atmosphere with only 19 rooms and the incredibly comfortable beds. The outstanding food in the Michelin starred restaurant. The dreamlike estate and the romantic location in the medieval setting of the village of Lauris, protected by centenary cedars and surrounded by springs.
