Local Heritage

Between the Luberon and Sainte-Victoire, Jouques: from the sky to the big meadow, an architectural treasure.

Jouques is a town of rural tradition which awakens a feeling of attachment from the first glance. The medieval village can be discovered little by little according to your liking, strolling through the flowered alleys rich in historical and cultural heritage accessible to all.

Discover the ancestral terroirs that make Jouques a village resolutely turned towards the preservation of its Provencal heritage: vineyards, lavender distillery and oil mill, beekeeping, almond, olive and lavender plantations, aromatic plants. Bees forage and butterflies frolic, birds sing...

 

 

The Ste Victoire Mountain

A few kilometres away, Vauvenargues at the foot of the Ste Victoire is a place not to be missed. It is there that lovers of the Spanish painter can visit this castle where Picasso lived and painted.

You will discover the intimacy of the painter who occupied the place from January 1959 to June 1961 and where he is buried next to his last wife Jacqueline.

Finally, for those who love hiking, all you have to do is climb to the top of the Ste Victoire.
