Area & Experiences
In the heart of French playwright, novelist and film-maker, Marcel Pagnol’s Provence, the Luberon mountain range is home to many villages perched high on its scattered hills. Amongst them is Bonnieux. Its church bell stands tall above the terracotta roof tops, piercing the brilliant blue sky. At a height of 425 metres, it presides over the vibrant, flower-filled valley. On the horizon, you can make out Villa Mélissa. It’s located just outside the village, surrounded by an abundant garden where the irresistible fragrance of roses and lavender blend into a sumptuous perfume.
Our nearby experiences
Flying over ochre
As the sun rises, a big colourful hot-air balloon expands while the surrounding nature is still fast asleep. Hop into the basket and take off over the multi-colour countryside and the big vein of Roussillon ochre. A hot-air balloon ride over Luberon feels like an imaginary fairy tale like you are taking a few steps in a childhood dream.
The oldest vineyard in the Luberon
Discover the Luberon's award-winning wines in one of the oldest vineyards in the region. Follow the owner through the corridors of his family's chateau to the magnificent cellar. Here, taste the domain's robust wines and listen to the surprising and mysterious history that hides within the old stone walls.
The truffle chase
Meet a family of Luberon truffle growers and head out in search of the fabulous fungus in the golden late-afternoon sun. Team up with Michel and his truffle-hunting dog and dive into the oaks to learn how to find and gather truffles. When you return, a feast will be waiting for you under the trees for a meal with the precious fungus's powerful flavours prepared before your eyes.
