Pretty easy rough walk takes you to the 'hole' you really don't get a sense of how big it is until you realise at various stages there are water depth markers up the hole. Admittedly it wasn't that full when we visited and it was...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 had fun yelling at the cave to make the echo sound. we didn't bring extra clothing so we only stay on the ground. it was quite steep and you need to be careful in case you fall.

La Fontaine de Vaucluse is a great place to visit when it is full of water. We went there in the fall after days of rain so it was pretty spectacular. If you have seen beautiful cascades and waterfalls in Colorado, USA, then this is...More

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.
