One of the highlights of the régional Park of the Luberon, the perched village of Lurs is surrounded by ancient olive groves and dry stone walls typical in Provence.
Lurs offers spectacular views over the Durance Valley, and the surrounding mountains. It is also on the famous Via Domitia.
The labyrinth of cobbled streets will lead you trough this charming village past ancient doors and windows, small chapels, archways and part of an old castle which was home to the bishops of Sisteron.
Follow the little stone cobbles with letters inscribed on them and discover the enigma they hold, as well as the origins and the evolution of writing. Lurs is the site for a yearly conference bringing graphic designers from around the world.
The 2 restaurants and the boutique are open all year round and the local olive oil on offer is still fabricated traditionally nearby.
