"The southern half of the spacious Vauclause département is quintessential rural Provence, full of sunlight, echoing history and rustic atmosphere. Its exquisite scenery has been half wild, half tamed since time immemorial. Neat terraces of vines climb hillsides, but at their edges bursts out the untamable, scrub-like garrigue. Along the southern horizon rise the dark, hazy lines of the Lubéron Massif, a secret world of rocks and ravines, fragrant Provençal woodland trails and remote hamlets."
