Walking and hiking Walking and hiking are probably the most widespread and easiest sports in this region which boasts a very well sign posted network of walking and hiking trails (from easy walks to hikes over several days) trough this beautiful nature landscape.
Cycling The Luberon is an El Dorado for all cyclists, offering numerous possibilities: from rides along the little country lanes of the valley through the vineyards, over the hills of the Luberon towards Lacoste, Bonnieux, Gordes, Venasque, to the difficult routes of the gorges of the Nesque, the Murs mountain pass or even of the Mont Ventoux. All these routes start out in the vicinity of the Mas des Grès. www.veloloisirluberon.com
