Infos & Booking


I suggest you go to the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department for a "cool" hike, on the "little sister" of Mont Ventoux!

From the Notre-Dame de Lure abbey, this route is for you the opportunity to discover the mountain of Lure, superb citadel which overhangs the Durance valley and gateway to the department of Hautes-Alpes.

Located in the northern part of the Luberon massif, this itinerary designed for experienced hikers offers you a magnificent path between beech forests and sharp ridges, without forgetting the exceptional panoramas on the Alps summits and the foothills of Provence.

The hike to the summit is also an opportunity to learn about the history of the men who have boldly frequented the area over the centuries: shepherds, charcoal makers, peddlers...

Perhaps this outing will make you want to climb the mountain of Lure in the middle of the afternoon to admire the sunset from its summit.

And if you want to continue to explore the region of Banon in a different way, you should follow me in the gorges of Oppedette, to discover the home produce and the goat cheese or on the "Saut du Moine" trail from Valsaintes Abbey.
