Robion, Luberon

Located in the Luberon National Natural Park, Robion is a small Provençal haven of peace leaning against the mountain. It is the starting point for many hiking trails in the Luberon. It is the ideal place for those wishing to avoid the crowds, while being close to the small town of Cavaillon.

What makes this village special?

Robion is the small Provençal village par excellence. You can therefore walk through its cobbled streets, admire its old houses and its ramparts, its monumental fountain, from the 19th century, which is more commonly called "the Pump", its century-old plane trees and its church square. Notre-Dame-de-la Nativité, from the 12th century, which has a pretty, freshly restored facade and is surmounted by a bell tower in the shape of an apron.

A visit to the old chapels will delight lovers of old stones. The chapel of the Pénitents-Blancs, which is located at the top of the village, is worth a detour.

Robion also has a delightful Théâtre de Verdure, a site of rare mineral beauty. It hosts, since 1996, a world music festival, the second half of July, and offers shows and concerts in the summer. Not to be missed if you are around!

The Robion market takes place every Thursday morning. This is an opportunity for a pleasant stop to discover local products, colors, aromas, flavors, which will awaken all your senses. Strawberries, melons, cherries, tomatoes, olives, creamy cheeses, honey, lavender, aromatic herbs, olive oils, focaccia, asparagus, jams, wines, truffles, but also Provençal fabrics, pottery, artisanal soaps, plants and flowers, gifts, jewelry, hats… in a festive atmosphere!

Finally, the village is the ideal starting point for hikes in the Luberon regional natural park. The GR6 and GR97 cross the town and will take you to the perched villages of Maubec and Oppède-le-Vieux. Don't miss the pretty villages of Ménerbes, Gordes, Roussillon, Venasque and Lourmarin either.
