Cadenet, the village

The origin of the name Cadenet comes from Candellence meaning the inhabitants of a high place... Cadenet is situated at the heart of the Luberon, between Pertuis and Lourmarin.

Cadenet, reaching the village

The village boasts a feudal chateau (now a classified site) which has a splendid view of the Durance river, the Luberon, the Sainte-Victoire and the Alpilles mountains.

Today the chateau is a cultural centure and an art gallery. Musical shows are held at the open-air theatre - "a la fraiche" as they say here... (the temperature only cools once the sun has gone down).

Cadenet, square and terraces
Visitors will be fascinated by the troglodyte dwellings (types of caves) and the basketwork museum.

The cultivation of willows in the region until 1978 helped boost the wickerwork industry. Some crafts people still live in Cadenet and they will be delighted to show you their work.
