Description from the owner
Le Point is a small house in the unspoilt village of Cucuron which lies inside the Luberon Nature Park in the Provence region of the south of France.
The village has many original medieval features to explore, a typical market (Tues) for local produce, 5 restaurants and local shops. It is often used as a location for filming and featured in the 2005 film 'A Good Year'.

Le Point - Charming south Luberon village house
Cucuron, Provence, France
Additional Location Information
Cucuron is a small unspoilt village situated at the foot of the southern slopes of the Luberon range.
It was more important in the 16th century (many houses remain from this period) and, although it was not involved in the Vaudois heresy, it suffered a gradual decline in the religious wars and only recently regained its former population (currently about 1800 people).
It is still almost entirely agricultural, and is surrounded by some fields of wheat and fruit trees, but increasingly with the advent of the appellation for Côtes du Luberon, by vineyards.
There is a good local museum which is worth a visit on the way up to the church (unexpected rare fresco of Roman ship, intriguing old photos of village life). The view from the top of the hill near Le Point is fine, and well seen (briefly!) in the film Horseman on the roof.
A special feature of the village is the old carp pond surrounded by plane trees where the weekly market is held on Tuesdays.
