Le Point - Charming south Luberon village house

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'.

It is located half way between Avignon and Aix en Provence and makes an ideal base for exploring Provence or just to relax and unwind at any time of the year. There is riding or hiking from the village up into the Luberon and scenic lake swimming at the nearby Etang de la Bonde. ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Cucuron is a small unspoilt village situated at the foot of the southern slopes of the Luberon range.

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.

A special feature of the village is the old carp pond surrounded by plane trees where the weekly market is held on Tuesdays. It was featured in the 2005 film 'A Good Year in Provence'.

The Luberon is notable for its beautiful hill villages (Bonnieux, Roussillon, Lourmarin, Gordes etc), its local specialities and its tradition of arts and handcrafts.

The most interesting villages near Cucuron are Ansouis, where the chateau is open for visits and Lourmarin, where the chateau hold art exhibitions. Further afield is the small town of Apt on the other side of the Luberon, with an ancient cathedral and good shops for Provencal materials and pottery, and the antique dealers Isle sur la Sorgue near Cavaillon. Roman Provence is accessible by car, (St Rémy, Arles, Nimes and the Pont du Gard to the south, Orange and Vaison la Romaine to the North) as is the Camargue, with the crusader port of Aigues Mortes, and further inland, the fortified village of Les Baux.

The local tourist office in Cucuron has good information and maps of walks and mountain bike routes on the Luberon. The Etang de la Bonde three miles away is a popular bathing lake, suitable for adults and small children, and there is an excellent swimming pool open in the summer at the nearby town of Pertuis (divided into a shallow pool for children and a larger adult pool.)
