A picnic in the footsteps of Manon des Sources in Vaugines

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!

A historic picnic in Mérindol

- 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.

Under the plane trees of Les Taillades

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.

Enjoying the good weather in Lourmarin
