Cycle with your family through the Luberon trails!

Explore the Luberon by bike, a fun and environmentally-friendly way to discover the region. There are a number of safe routes available, offering the whole family the chance to pedal through some wonderful landscapes. For a family outing, we recommend the Calavon cycle route, part of La Méditerranée à vélo (EuroVelo 8) in the heart of the Luberon Regional Nature Park. It's an ideal family outing, with no need for a car, no steep gradients and plenty of nature!

Leaving from Cavaillon, take a trip into the heart of the Luberon countryside! It's the perfect opportunity for your little ones to get back in the saddle and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air of Provence. And yes, for children, cycling is an entertaining way to familiarise themselves with the world around them!

Thrills and spills at Maubec Pumptrack

This holiday season, we'd like to invite you to discover the Maubec pumptrack , a must-do activity for families! Perfect for children who love thrills, the track is designed for bikes, skateboards, scooters and rollerblades. It's the ideal place to introduce your children to balance and speed.

Children must be supervised by an adult.

Helmets must be worn. Gloves, knee pads and elbow pads are strongly recommended.

Rock-climbing combines fun, thrills and discovery, and is the ideal choice for outdoor enthusiasts who want to share some family time together. This fun and exciting activity is guaranteed to bring you laughter and good humour!

Head for La Passerelle des Cimes at Lagnes! Discover the many facets of this suspended universe: from footbridges to monkey bridges, ladders and nets high above the ground, not forgetting big jumps and tunnel barrels. For some, the ground will seem a long way off, while others will find it again almost too quickly via the aerial slide or the zip wires along the courses. The experience varies in length from 1h30 to 4 hours, with an average time of around 2h30. Come on, let's try it!

A fun way to discover the villages of Gordes and Lourmarin

Gordes and Lourmarin, two pearls of the Luberon, can also be discovered with children's eyes. Visit these two villages classified by the association Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, thanks to our games booklets! These fun activities will help them immerse themselves in the local history and architecture, while discovering the cultural heritage in an interactive and entertaining way through games, rebus, tangrams... taking the time to observe, guess and look for ingenious riddles!

In Lourmarin, you'll wander through the streets to discover Philippe de Girard's house, the Place de l'Ormeau, the covered fountain, the Place de Castellas, the church, the fountain with the 3 masks, the temple and the castle.

In Gordes, discover the Castle, the Fountain, the Church, the Saint-Jacques Chaplaincy, the Porte de Savoie, the Washhouse and the terraces as you wander through the streets.

For children who dream of adventure and thrills, the Via Ferrata in Cavaillon offers a thrilling experience right in the heart of the town! The Via Ferrata de Cavaillon offers a cliff-side course for young climbers over 1m30, "the Via Natura".

A discovery route lasting around 2 hours, this is an opportunity for your little adventurers to test their courage and agility. Equipped and safe, children will discover the pleasure of climbing while enjoying breathtaking views over the Luberon, the Monts de Vaucluse and Mont Ventoux (...) An ideal activity for developing self-confidence and a taste for effort. If you're doing this for the first time, we obviously recommend that you take a guide with you. Your teenagers will love it!
