Gignac, The Luberon

Located on the border of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, the smallest village of Vaucluse is nestled in the vegetation and seduces with its wild charm. It has preserved the traces of a rich historical heritage that is worth the detour. A timeless stay awaits lovers of nature and silence.

What makes this village special?

It is good to stroll through the alleys of this discreet village, discover its fortifications, its 12th century Romanesque church, its old windmill, its houses with towers, its wash house and its castle, burnt down in the 16th century and rebuilt in the 18th century .

From the village, the view of the surrounding sites is breathtaking! Located on the famous Route des Ocres, Gignac offers hikes in the heart of nature with the only colors being the ochres of the Provençal Colorado and the blue of the lavender fields. You can explore villages like Rustrel, Viens, or the magnificent perched village of Simiane-la-Rotonde.

Gignac is also appreciated for its wines and its cherries. So, if you are looking for a stay out of time, quiet, without shops and without temptations of all kinds, this little corner of paradise is for you!
