The previous reviewer described it perfectly...white washed stone walls and ceilings, challenging staircase and an adorable hand painted trompe l' oeil mini-bedroom.

The cottage was all we had hoped for. The photos give a good impression of it. The bottom floor is really interesting with a domed, whitewashed stone roof over the main bedroom which has one of the most comfortable and roomy beds we have ever...More

My daughter and I were looking for a quiet village as a base for exploring the Luberon region and Cucuron was a perfect location. We loved the village; it is small enough to be fairly peaceful but still had most of what we needed. Every...More

About the neighbourhood
Cucuron is a small unspoilt village situated at the foot of the southern slopes of the Luberon range. It is still almost entirely agricultural, and is surrounded by some fields of wheat and fruit trees, but increasingly with the advent of the appellation for Côtes du Luberon, by vineyards. A special feature of the village is the old carp pond surrounded by plane trees where the weekly market is held on Tuesdays. It was featured in the 2005 film A Good Year in ProvenceThe local tourist office in Cucuron has good information and maps of walks and mountain bike routes on the Luberon. The Etang de la Bonde three miles away is a popular bathing lake, suitable for adults and small children, and there is an excellent swimming pool open in the summer at the nearby town of Pertuis (divided into a s... more
