Le Pavillon de Galon is located a short walk from the village of Cucuron in the heart of the Luberon Natural Park and provides the perfect base from which to explore Provence and the Midi. Cucuron is a charming, unspoilt, atmospheric village with good restaurants.
From our resort, the village is easily reachable, at a walking distance of 700 meters and following a beautiful landscape. It has everything you need on a day-to-day basis, so there is no need to go any where if you don't want to. Within an hour drive, one can visit: the Palais des Papes in Avignon, the fountains in Aix-en-Provence, the antiques markets at l' Isle-sur-Sorgue, the Roman arena in Arles, some of the best renowned concerts, operas as well as jazz, classical and contemporary concerts, the wild and pristine coast of the Med or simply taste the Bouillabaisse in Marseille...
Closer to Cucuron, one can tour the wonderful hill villages of the Luberon: Lourmarin, Gordes, Bonnieux, Menerbes, Ansouis, Lacoste, Gordes, Roussillon, Goult, Oppède... For cultural diversions, there are internationally renowned festivals such as: an opera festival in Aix, a piano festival at Roque d"Antheron, a theatre festival in Avignon and a myriad of events all year around.
The region has a good selection of Michelin-starred restaurants as well as "bonnes petites tables" to satisfy the most demanding gourmets. For wine lovers, the great vineyards of the Rhône, Chateauneuf du Pape and Hermitage are nearby. The wines of the Côtes du Luberon offer an excellent value.
