La Bastidonne

Departement of Vaucluse - Luberon - Pop.: 800 h.

5 km east from Pertuis (take the A51 exit)

Situated in the Luberon Nature Park, La Bastidonneis a typical Provencal country town. While walking through its narrow streets you will soon come accross the most charming houses. By taking the rue des Ferrages or the rue de l'eglise, you will discover the communal washing place the fountain and the delightful place du Barri. When you finally arrive at the rue du Chateau, you can admire the Luberon, the Durance river plain and "la chaine de l'Etoile".

A pleasant walking tour can be made to the plateau de St Julien. Situated about 1km from the village, the plateau is a natural fortress at an altitude of 450 metres. Not only will you discover the ruins of an old chapel, but there is an excellent view of the Durance river and the Sainte-Victoire mountain.

You can also visit the domaine du Grand Real. This huge, rich area was apparently inhabited by several monks, although only the remains of the priory and the chapel can be seen today. At the nearby "ferme restaurant" you have the opportunity to savour some true rural produce, or you can buy some and cook it yourself!
