Infos & Booking


I propose you to come to hike along the water, on the trail of the Saut du Moine. Starting from the Abbaye de Valsaintes, you will discover this remarkable natural site but also the natural wealth and the fauna of the Luberon.

After this 3-hour hike in the heart of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department, you will be welcomed for lunch at the restaurant of the garden of the Abbaye de Valsaintes to taste the creative homemade cooking of the chef Valentin Herbet.

If you would like to continue to explore the region of Banon in another way, you might follow me to climb the mountain of Lure, in the discovery of the home produce and the goat cheese or in the Oppedette gorges.
