Puget sur Durance is a peaceful little village in the Luberon, situated in southern Vaucluse, near to the Durance and the Bouches du Rhone department.
Puget's assets lie in its natural environment, rather than in its architectural or historical heritage.

Here nature is generous and lush. Holm oaks and bushes will line your route through pleasant undergrowth, interspersed with rocks and cliffs.
The Bergerie de la Tapy refuge is the perfect spot for lunch.
From Puget you can easily reach the well-known Cedar Forest, the Portalas site and some great viewpoints of the Durance valley.
You'll be able to see the Alpilles and the area around Aix en Provence, as far as the Sainte Victoire mountain.
