Discover the beautiful village of Maubec in the Luberon in Vaucluse. Perched village that offers stunning views of the Monts de Vaucluse up to the Ventoux.

Beautiful houses with Provencal architecture arranged along the calades (local pavement) and a small heritage linked to water (wells, noria...) make of this village a starting point for wonderful hikes.
Not far away, its Sunday morning farmer's market (Coustellet) is a must-see...
The origins of the name Maubec : Some says it's because the village was built on the wrong side of the hill (“ubac”).
