Taillades - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Vaucluse

Backed the Luberon, the Taillades is one of the first and picturesque villages perched at the exit of Cavaillon (5 km). Quietly away from the main roads it gives the "tone" to the beauty of the sites that are the hallmark of this region.

The overall presentation of the village hints at a harmoniously built heritage and distributed from the forest.

The old town, the historical, cultural and tourist place is the custodian of a past where the stone work has shaped the landscape.

Below, in the plain on the banks of the Carpentras Canal and Isle, St. Peter mill, built in 1859, no doubt evokes the industrial past of the village.

Its proximity to the forest, Taillades is also a strategic point for nature lovers by offering a network of roads and trails (hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking ) rich in colors and smells (but with access however regulated during the summer ).
