You will walk the edge of the Buoux plateau, comprised of 100 m high cliffs, overlooking the valley of Aiguebrun.


You will enjoy the vast panorama of the Aiguebrun and of the Seguins farm below, on the Fort de Buoux located on a rocky spur facing you and on the mountain of Luberon above.


Then you will walk on a picturesque stone road offering beautiful stone architecture with some troglodyte habitations. You can admire La Baume, a beautiful troglodytic house under shelter and Chantebelle, former hamlet partially restored.

You will reach Sivergues, a small village located above the valley of the Aiguebrun, on the old route leading to the mountain ridge. This very small village « at the end of the world”, still partially inhabited, is comprised of a church and of several well restored houses.

You will then go through les Seguins, an old restored hamlet now an inn, in the bottom of the valley of the Aiguebrun and at the foot of superb 100 m high cliffs. There, you will discover a superb site with magnificent landscapes.


Finally, you will visit the fort de Buoux, vestiges of an old medieval fortress, built on a rocky spur 60 m above the valley.
