Simiane-la-Rotonde, the "city of character", is the closest village (5km) and is regarded as being one of the loveliest hill-top villages in 'Haute Provence'. Thanks to its high altitude (600-700m), the village enjoys some cool respite from the blazing hot summer sun. For many years, Simiane was the regional capital of lavender and remains an important production centre today. A traditional music festival takes place each summer from mid-July to mid-August.

Banon, the village made famous by its goat cheese wrapped in dried chestnut leaves and tied with a raffia ribbon, is located 9km away.

Each Saturday morning there is a large market in Apt, a lovely little town that also offers shops, and supermarkets and is located 20km away - about 30 minutes by car.

Luberon´s most well-known villages can be reached easily by car (from 40 to 50 minutes): Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Ménerbes...
