Nestled in the foothills of the southern slope of the Luberon, Vaugines has kept its authentic and Provencal charm that resides in its picturesque alleys and vaulted staircases, its plots and its beautiful mansions.

The church of Saint Barthélemy, the alleys of the old village inlaid with many fossils (Rue des Coquillages), the beautiful mansions La Commanderie (rue des Amazones) and the Captainerie are worth a visit, not forgetting the Place de la Mairie and its fountain where you can stop at the terrace of the bar or pizzeria.

Vaugines is also the focal point of several long hiking trails allowing walkers, cyclists and riders to discover the Luberon, its flora and fauna.

The oldest mention of the village of Vaugines dates back to 1920, but its territory was occupied since ancient times. In the 11th century, the Abbey of Psalmody founded in the 'vallis juvina', also known as' vallisamata ', where many springs flow, a small priory at the site of the current Romanesque church. In the 16th, then in the 18th century the agglomeration grouped around its castle, which is now extinct, took a new boom and stretched to the west under the cliff of chickens.
