Luberon & Provence
The Luberon or Lubéron Massif (Provençal Occitan: Leberon in classical norm or Leberoun in Mistralian norm) has a maximum altitude of 1,256 m and an area of about 600 km². It is composed of three mountain ranges: (from west to est) the little Luberon, the big Luberon and the oriental Luberon, lying in the middle of Provence in the far south of France. The valley between them contains a number of towns and villages as well as agricultural land.
In the last decades the Luberon became known in the English-speaking world especially through a series of books by British author Peter Mayle giving the chronicle of a British expatriate who settled in the village of Ménerbes. One of his books was made into a film A Good Year (2006) directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe, which was filmed there.
