Amazing natural scenery! Could not get enough of the cascading river! Town is nice, but the water is the main attraction. Make sure to take the short hike to the source; worth every step!

A very unique geological feature and one that isn’t seen commonly. The fountain to this has so many mysteries surrounding its origins & sources. The fountain is set amidst stunning and well preserved natural scenery with greens of the sub tropical vegetation dominating the landscape...More

We visited La Fontaine de Vaucluse during our recent trip to France. We spent part of a lovely fall afternoon walking up the river to the cave. It is very low at this time of year with no water flowing down part of the river....More

Saw quite a lot of tourists but it shows the natural sides of Provence, France. Not too many souvenirs shops nor restaurants. Great place to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon beside the lake.
