Learn to ease into country life in Luberon

Set on a massif composed of three mountain ranges, and lined with lush valleys, the Luberon is the peak of French rural tradition—that is, gorgeous countryside, lavender fields, great food, and enough wine to wash your troubles away. It's most famous for its chain of villages set on hills overlooking rolling valleys, vineyards, and ancient abbeys. All of these villages host regular open-air markets full of local specialties. Book a Luberon vacation rental and the only thing distracting you from the peace and quiet of country life will be the happy rumbling of your stomach at meal times.

One picture-postcard village is enough. You'll have 26

Travelers have been waxing lyrical about the Luberon's beautiful hill-top villages for decades, and hiking or biking the well-marked trails between them is one of the best ways to get a feel for the region. Sign up for a guided tour, or load up on maps and head off on your own. Either way, you'll end up in a landscape of vineyards and orchards, tracing a path between charming, medieval villages and their open-air farmer's markets. Antique markets are open (and open-air too) from spring to fall, and two of the region's villages, Sault and Valreas, host popular lavender festivals.

These abbeys and museums give flower power new meaning

The lavender of the Luberon is shown proper respect at the Musee de la Lavande, an eco-museum with exhibits explaining the cultivation and harvesting of the fragrant herb. You can take a guided tour of the flowering fields if you visit from May to September. Near the village of Gordes is the Abbaye Notre-Dame de Senanque, an absolute must-see. You can wander the grounds or take a guided tour of this monastic community, housed in the abbey since 1148. Oh, did we mention there's lavender here, too? The blooms surrounding the abbey are one of the iconic images of the region.

A crowded hot-spot in summer, a hidden gem in winter

Your Luberon vacation rental will be at its best in spring or fall if you appreciate lower rates and mild weather. Temperatures range from the 50s to the 70s, and it's a great time for long hikes and bike rides. If you're looking for the best bargains, visit between December and February. You'll have to bundle up against temps in the 40s, but the brisk air makes walking a pleasure. Summer tends to be hot and dry, and the entire southern region is popular with French and international vacationers.

Luberon is the land of lovely, luscious lavender

Do you love animals, blue skies, and the feeling of being surrounded by Mother Nature undisturbed? Well, you're in luck. Your Luberon vacation rental is situated smack dab in the middle of one of France's protected parks, and the region is particularly diverse. Bird watchers can spot 135 winged species, like Bonelli's eagle and the short-toed snake eagle. Plants hold their own out here, too. Provence's famous lavender fields are easily spotted in summer, whether you're on the hiking trails or in the car, and sunflowers are in full bloom in July and August.
