Apt - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Vaucluse

Apt, located in the Luberon, is an ideal place for visiting the Luberon. You will never be far from the hilltop villages that surround it, as Buoux, Bonnieux, Gordes, St. Saturnin, Roussillon and many others that make all the charm of the Luberon.

A few kilometers from Apt is the Provencal Colorado, beautiful place carved in ocher that were the lifeblood of the town.
