Luberon et Vin en Provence Sept. 4- 15

 

In southeastern France…

between Mt. Blanc and Marseilles lies the fabled land of Provence.
And in its midst roll the Prealpine foothills of Luberon.
Running west toward the Rhone valley, its hilltops crowned with medieval villages, its slopes cloaked in oak and beech, valleys draped in vineyards, Luberon is a cyclist’s dream.
