Located in the epic-centre of the Luberon Regional National Park Cucuron displays all the charms of a classic Provençal village. The hamlet, like its closest neighbours Lourmarin, Ansouis and Vaugines are bejewelled with ramparts, bell towers and shady plane trees.

All the villages in this part of the Luberon encompass a nearly unfathomable history of human occupation, which dates from the Neolithic Era. The Gauls inhabited the area and the Romans followed them. In 1720, the plague struck the towns’ population with abandon. That was followed by wars and financial challenges, which resulted in rural population flight to major economic centres.

Market day is an event, a party atmosphere where people and products unite around the l’etang (pond). If you plan on staying for lunch, it is best to make a reservation, some restaurants like la Petite Table fill weeks in advance.
