Discover the beautiful town of Maubec in the Luberon in Vaucluse. Perched village that offers stunning views of the mountains of Vaucluse up to the Ventoux.
Maubec is a commune perched on a hill parallel to the Luberon: the Montagnette. The Vieux village of Maubec offers a breathtaking view of both the Monts de Vaucluse up to the Ventoux and the Luberon massif.
Beautiful houses with Provencal architecture arranged along the calades and a small built heritage linked to water (wells, noria...) make this village a starting point for beautiful hikes.
Not far away, its Sunday morning peasant market (Coustellet) is absolutely to be done...
