Murs is a small village in the Vaucluse department of France's Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. It lies within the Luberon regional nature park and is known for its picturesque stone houses and beautiful countryside.

There's so much to discover in our beautiful region, here are just a few of our recommendations.

A wonderful discovery...

L'Isle sur la Sorgue and Fontaine de Vaucluse

Le Gouffre de Fontaine de Vaucluse: with an average total flow of 630 million m³ per year, this spring is the largest in France and one of the largest in the world, in terms of volume of water flowed.

L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, the capital of antiques and second-hand goods, is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike, with a lively Sunday and market scene. It's nicknamed "Little Venice" because of its canals.

Rustrel and the Colorado Provençal

Rustrel's Colorado Provençal offers magnificent, unusual landscapes. Sculpted by erosion, cliffs, peaks, ravines and caves tinted red, orange and gold intermingle with impressive cascades of crystal-clear water.

Les Ocres de Roussillon is also a wonder of colors!

Sénanque Abbey

Located in Gordes, one of the "Most Beautiful Villages in France", the Cistercian edifice rises above lavender fields. If you're visiting the Luberon, be sure to pay a visit to this magnificent Vaucluse treasure.

The Village of Gordes

It's a must-see in the Luberon, straddling the Monts de Vaucluse and the Parc Naturel Régional du Luberon. Take a stroll through the streets of Gordes, and share a moment with your partner or family.

Avignon and the Palais des Papes

The Palais des Papes is the most important building constructed during the Gothic period, and bears witness to the presence of the 9 popes who succeeded each other in Avignon during the 14th century. Construction took less than 20 years, from 1335 to 1352. It was mainly the work of two papal builders: Benedict XII, who built the first papal palace (known as the Old Palace), and Clement VI, who built new extensions (known as the New Palace).

The tour will reveal the stages and techniques involved in the construction of this extraordinary edifice and its fabulous decorations, explain how the temporal and spiritual power of the papacy was exercised, meet the popes and other important figures who left their mark on the site, and relive the cultural influence and splendor of the papal court.
