Dentelles De Montmirail

Two treks possible: Duration: 6-7 hours, 14 kms or 3-4 hours, 7km

Difficulty: Both are challenging: 7/10

Between the earth and the sky…Some places remind us of the full majesty of nature. On the cliffedge of the Dentelles de Montmirail  perspective can be gained of our place in time and space

This is a stunning walk. At the start the path launches straight up the mountain, through winding forest trails bringing you to the foothills of the imposing Dentelles

 

The path then hugs the cliff edge, a head for heights will help here. Hands as well as feet are often needed over the next hour of the hike

Once the Dentelles have been traversed the hike continues on the other side of the rocks, the light changes, the feet are weary but vigilance is still needed, loose stones can make the footing precarious

Frequent breaks to catch your breath will provide you with pauses to marvel over the stunning panoramic views

Gorge Du Badarel

Duration: 3-4 hours, 7 kms

Difficulty medium: 6/10

A stunning hike, with short and steep ascent in a wild gorge, filled with the herbs of Provence, thyme, rosemary and majoram, surrounded by delicate butterflies in the warmer months

As the valley opens up panoramic views over the valley of Cavaillon and Mont Ventoux bring delight. As the path hugs the rocky crags of the cliff, the perspective changes with the frequency of the foliage. The dramatic and steep descent requires the sure footing of a mountain goat

Rocher de deux Trous

Duration: 3-4 hours, 6.5 kms

Difficulty easy: 4/10

A stunning walk above the village of St Remy, made famous by Nostradamus and Van Gogh

The clear rock of the Alpilles contrasts with the rugged foliage of the Provencal shrub, rich in the scents and herbs of the season. The tall pines offer shade and the 360 views of the region are stunning

From the  elaborate  Greco-Roman remains of Glanum we will wind our way upwards towards the rocks of the Alpilles. Time and the mistral have carved holes in the white cliffs affording views over the Valley of Avignon all the way to Mont Ventoux

Gorge du Regalon

A magical trail at the base of a dramatic gorge. Birdsong regales us enroute and all the scents of nature feel very close in the narrows of this path

The narrows of the gorge are followed by the majesty of the Luberon as we mount the rocky mountain face to picnic in the sun

Gordes to Abbaye de Senanque

Duration: 3-4 hours, 8 kms

Difficulty easy: 4/10

The walk begins with a Roman stone lined road that transports us to another era. Olive trees line our path on the Provencal idyll walk. The unbalanced stones can be challenging, good shoes are recommended

The colours and scents of Provence surround us and we plunge into a wooded forest that leads to the Abbaye. Recent renovations render the ancient Abbaye spectacular as it stands in solitary spendor overlooking the wide stretch of lavender fields that span the valley before the monastic buildings

We weave along the river valley that follows the valley back towards Gordes before rising to follow a path lined by bories, drystone structures that were used as shelters by shepherds

A stunning hike in the heart of the Luberon
