Cheval Blanc : Bell tower

Cheval Blanc is the first stop in a series of pretty villages in the southern Luberon which stretch as far as Pertuis : Oppede, Merindol, Lourmarin, Cadenet, Ansouis... You will also appreciate the beautiful surroundings of the Luberon Nature Park.

Cheval Blanc - River
Cheval Blanc is the gateway to the Luberon. The colours of the surrounding countryside are in perfect harmony with the magnificent backdrop created by the river and the mountain. The Durance and its canals bring freshness and fertility to the orchards and farms while walking trails which start at the village lead you to the summit of the Luberon.

Cheval Blanc - Cypress

Cheval Blanc is lucky enough to have the superb Gorges de Regalon on its doorstep. These canyons and gorges which plunge to a depth of 30 metres, shelter a magnificent forest filled with oak trees, maples, Alep pines, cherry trees, fig trees... eagles, vultures, lizards, butterflies and owls...

Thanks to the shade provided by the oaks of Bonnieux, the Gorges de Regalon is one of the best places to go hiking during the hot summer months of July and August. For the record, the name "Cheval Blanc" originates from an old inn which offered refreshments to travellers taking the ferry across the river...
