The closest beaches to the Luberon

Here is a selection of beaches that Mas de Foncaudette recommends within a radius of approximately 45 minutes to 2 hours from Lourmarin:

- The blue coast and its large beaches and small ports which extend from Carry-le-Rouet including Rouet beach, to the very large beach of Cap Couronne. To get there, no tolls, just the Pertuis motorway (at the height of Venelles) to Aix then Marseille, direction Martigues - Montpellier and the turn towards all the stations is there

- The Var beaches with the famous resorts of CASSIS, SAINT CYR LES LECQUES, BANDOL, and many others to discover...

Another option very popular with the people of Luberon and Vaucluse during the high summer heat: The Etang de la Bonde.

Located in Cabrières d'Aigues, about twenty minutes by car from the Mas, this pond in a natural environment is ideal for family swimming without going too far away. You will find shaded areas and fresh water on site. You can also eat on site and quench your thirst if necessary.

A little less than 2 hours from our guest house, you can also choose to spend a day in the Verdon gorges and enjoy the famous Lac de Sainte Croix with its turquoise waters. Between a simple swim or an activity, such as padel or pedal boat, you will be able to fully admire the natural environment that surrounds it.
