Cheval-Blanc, a village at the foot of the Luberon, stretches its territory for about ten kilometres between the Durance and the southern slopes of the Luberon.
A stone's throw from Cavaillon, the landscapes of Cheval-Blanc harmonize naturally and subtly between the water and the mountains. The Carpentras Canal is a rhythm of the landscape and makes possible all the fruit and vegetable crops that you can see during your walks in the commune at the foot of the Luberon.
The village of Cheval-Blanc is irrigated by two canals: the oldest, Canal Saint-Julien dates back to 1171 and was the first canal of Provence, the other, the Carpentras Canal dating from the end of the 19th century is the prologation of another canal of the 18th century.
On Mardi Gras, Cheval-Blanc wakes up in a festive atmosphere: the Belles (young Chevalblanais boys aged 16 to 23) invade the village and roam all the houses of Cheval-Blanc in a formal costume in search of young girls to marry to invite them to the grand ball. This tradition has always been perpetuating, for almost a century!
