Joucas, Luberon

On a hillock in the Vaucluse mountains, facing the ocher cliffs, Joucas is a real haven of peace, full of charm and authenticity. This hilltop village has managed to preserve its historical heritage which will charm you, and promises you panoramas of rare beauty over the Luberon plain, sheltered from the onslaught of the mistral.

What makes this village special?

The village has pleasant cobbled and stepped streets that you can walk around to discover pretty stone houses with flowery nooks. The Saint-Jean-Baptiste church was rebuilt in the 18th century and has nothing special to report on the outside. On the other hand, the interior is a superb museum of Italian art with its trompe-l'œil, not to be missed under any circumstances! You can see in the village the tower of a windmill and an oil mill.

Joucas is a lively town, with cafes and restaurants. It offers many events in the summer. Hiking or horseback riding will delight the most athletic, hot air balloon rides, the most eager for thrills.

Nearby are towns and villages that are worth visiting: Murs, Roussillon, Gordes, Ménerbes, Cabrières-d'Avignon or Fantaine-de-Vaucluse.
