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.

This area and town surrounding the river Sorgue is really beautiful, tranquil and worth the stop here. The town sits right up against the rock hills with the picturesque river below. Very small and manageable with not too many tourists, makes it a great place...More

Great walk from the car park through the village and up to the fountain. Bit hard if you not mobile, but that would be my only concern. Plenty of photo opportunities.

A stunning, picturesque village, a photographer’s dream with the river running through the centre. Plenty of shops, but mainly of the tourist variety, and a good selection of cafes and restaurants. You have to take the walk up to the source of the river visiting...More

Cycling through the adjacent town, I recognized the spring passing under the road bridge and had the good sense to stop. Here's why you should, too. Formed by a natural spring that is vigorous enough to generate rapids, the water of the Fontaine de Vaucluse...More

We had a rental car. Traveling through Provence is very difficult without one. There is no mass transit between the cities. There may be some buses but not sure about that. I was hesitant about driving but it was really... More
