The Luberon villages of Provence, France are characterized by a series of strikingly picturesque, hill-top settings dating back 1000 years or more. When you stroll through the cobblestone streets of these villages and cities you will discover many windows and doorways that are a visual feast of creativity and color.
Here are just a few that I captured during my visit to three small villages: L'Isle Sur La Sorgue, Lourmarin,and Roussillon. Enjoy the color.

Around the corner from the Bistrot de Roussillon, step inside a small hillside church and admire the colorful stained glass windows.
In the tiny town of Lourmarin, take a tour of the castle and you'll be able to gaze upon this stained glass treasure.
It doesn't get more French than this: a bicyclette parked outside a colorful rouge doorway in L'Isle Sur La Sorgue.

Book Your Trip
Booking travel online should be quick and easy…not to mention affordable and that's why I like Expedia. Did you know that you can save up to $525 when you book your flight and hotel together at Expedia.com? For the best deals, book 60 days or more before you travel because usually the further out you plan, the better the package rate.
