The beautiful days are back, what could be better than a good gourmet picnic under the sun of the Luberon surrounded by the people you appreciate in a pretty corner of nature?
Once you have arrived in the charming village of Cabrières-d'Avignon, go to the Cedar Forest for a picnic under the trees! Several tables are at your disposal for a delicious meal in a quiet place.
Your walk through the picturesque village of Vaugines will certainly lead you to the church of Saint-Barthélemy. This is where the famous wedding scene from Manon des sources was filmed! In the field next to the church, you can enjoy a good picnic in a peaceful setting. Suitable for a good time alone, in pairs, with family or friends!
- On the way back from a nice walk to the Vaudois memorial, sit down and enjoy your picnic in the village of Mérindol where tables are available next to the Muse car park.
But also :
- At the Garrigue nature reserve, on leaving Mérindol in the direction of Lauris, don't miss the fauna and flora discovery trail. This trail, which is adapted for people with disabilities, leads to a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the Durance. Near the car park, under the trees, beautiful picnic tables await you.
- On the Huguenots picnic area there are 2 shaded tables on the edge of the D973.
A shaded picnic table is located on the Aire de Lauris on the Chemin des Bas Fraisses.
Grab your best checkered tablecloth, a wicker basket and treat yourself to a meal on the threshing floor of the Sainte-Cécile garden! A quiet place where you can enjoy the majestic view of the village of Oppède-le-Vieux, hear the birds sing and enjoy the beautiful southern sun.
After contemplating the view of the limestone quarries at the top of the village of Les Taillades, go to the Moulin St Pierre: sit on the grass, have a picnic in a place of absolute serenity under the huge plane trees and rest.
The village of Lourmarin, listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France, has colourful streets, a market full of flavours and scents, and pretty shops and galleries. A must-see in the Luberon! In the sun, surrounded by greenery in a small corner next to the Fruitière Numérique car park, put down your tablecloth and enjoy the fresh air and good weather.
The Saint-Jacques hill, is a place that will offer you an absolutely incredible view during your picnic! After 1h30 discovering the hill and its shaded valleys in the middle of Aleppo pines, you will arrive at the top where you can enjoy a good meal and admire the view over the town of Cavaillon.
After a good picnic, venture into the forest with a choice of 2 routes: a botanical route of 3km (hike of about 1h30) in the middle of the scrubland, cedar forest. Or a 1300 m long health trail for families and sportsmen. You will enjoy doing 20 workshops alternating warm-up, strength training and recovery.
