Cheval-Blanc, a village at the foot of the South 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 water and mountains. The Carpentras Canal makes possible all the fruit and vegetable crops that you can see during your walks in the village.
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.
An amazing natural site. To be discovered with one of our nature guide.
Due to its location in the Regional Natural Park, this site has an increadible biodiversity. For the same reasons this site is also a very sensitive area thus it is not recommended to go hiking in the canyon on your own.
On Mardi Gras, Cheval-Blanc wakes up in a festive atmosphere: Les Belles (young boys from the village, aged from 16 to 23) invade the village in traditional costumes, looking for young girls to marry, in all the houses, to invite them to the grand ball. This tradition has always been perpetuating, for almost a century!
