Truly unexpected beauty in this tiny village on the river. A short walk up to an intriguing cave/spring. Best in Spring or Autumn in terms of heat

Beautiful attraction to spend a bright afternoon. The density of vegetation colours the water green and makes a gorgeous backdrop for photography. Spend time leisurely at cafes and learn how hand made paper comes into being. This natural spring is a gift from Mother Nature.

May is a great time to explore this town. There were very few tourists. The Sorgue is a gorgeous river and the streets next to it offer excellent views of it. Make sure to walk up the hill towards the source.

This is the source of the river Sorgue and as such, pumps out lots of beautiful, clear, blue and green water. But it can be a bit of a disappointment during times of low water levels. It's a pretty town as well, with lots of...More
