    Things to do

    -Outdoor recreation. La Bastide-des-Jourdans is within the Luberon Natural Regional Park, which encompasses a mountainous landscape covered in pine woodland, and preserving lots of architectural heritage. Discover old chateaux and stone chapels along twisting hilly paths. If you’re up for some golf then Luberon’s own club is close by, with a demanding mountain course in a classic Provençal landscape.

    -Picturesque villages. La Bastide-des-Jourdans is a handsome old village, in a region that is rich in 14th Century architecture and home to countless “perched” mountain villages. The older part of La Bastide-des-Jourdans is protected by original medieval walls, and boasts historic gates, a castle and a couple of beautiful churches. The nearby town of Manosque is also from the 1300s and has two imposing medieval gates leading to an old centre of typical Provençal houses and hidden squares.

    -Gorges du Verdon. France’s version of the Grand Canyon, the Verdon Gorge has been carved by the eponymous river over millions of years, creating a truly arresting landscape. At points the ravine reaches depths of more than 700 metres, and people flock to the canyon for walking and climbing trips. It’s also possible to kayak or raft along the river with local adventure tourism companies.

    -Coast. Another natural wonder within a comfortable drive of La Bastide-des-Jourdans can be found just southeast of Marseille. The Calanques form a remarkable coastal landscape of fjords, promontories, rocky outcrops and cliffs that can be experienced on foot or by boat. If it’s beachtime you want then you could try the small but perfectly formed beach at Cassis, backed by rugged cliffs and with seductive clear waters.

    -Cuisine. Local cuisine draws on the freshest seasonal produce. The olive oil cultivated in this region has AOC protection, while the nearby town of Apt is well-known for the high quality of its cherries in summer, which have been used to make candied fruits with artisan techniques for many centuries. The largest local market is in Manosque on Saturdays, and here you get your hands on some sublime fruit, vegetables, meats, cheeses, olive oil and wines.
