Visiting this site should take you about an hour. There are a lot of people. A variety of restaurants available. It feels somewhat touristy. About a 400 meter walk from the entrance to the source. Plenty of opportunities to take pictures of the beautiful clear...More

There's parking available in the village, costed 4 EUR. The walk to the source is like 15 minutes alongside the river. The first like 400m is one icecream store after the other, so the description touristic is an understatement. Too bad the village decided to...More

Beautiful village, with a pleasant walk along the banks of the clearest greenest water to the source of the river. Plentiful ice cream stalls on the way back. Best part was putting our feet in the freezing water on a hot July day!

Truly a charming little town. Definitely walk up the short trail to see the fountain source. There is a fence at the end of the trail but everyone was climbing over it so we did the same. A bit of an unstable, rocky slope so...More

We visited here as we was recommended by locals where we were staying in Seguret. We parked in the large car parking area just before entering Fontaine de vaucluse as it was much easier and very reasonably priced. There are no words that can describe...More
