The cave where the first source of water was supposed to be seen was dry because it was summer. The walk was pleasant but it was quite a distance and steep in some parts especially going towards the source. The displays for sale at the...More

In the summer (i.e. August), there is no water; just an empty cave. It is a pleasant walk from the village though along a footpath and the village itself is pretty and has everything you need to while away the time. There is no visitor...More

Interesting spot at the mysterious source of la Sorgue river. Clearly a tourist trap but what a pretty one. Many places to eat and absorb..

We managed to get close in parking off season. Otherwise I would guess it's a challenge. Very nice walk up to the viewpoint. Glad I did my homework in advance since the interpretive signs are lacking.

This little pearl in the Luberon is a sight for a sore eye. Situated on a beautiful stream, la Sorge, which boasts a extraordinary green color, it is under an old castle and high ridges of the Vaucluse. Worth a stop and a stroll.

This area and town surrounding the river Sorgue is really beautiful, tranquil and worth the stop here. The town sits right up against the rock hills with the picturesque river below. Very small and manageable with not too many tourists, makes it a great place...More
