Villa Domino, Cadenet, Luberon

In the heart of the Luberon with panoramic views over the Durance river, Saint Victoire mountain and the Alpilles National Park is the picturesque village of Cadenet. Pop into the tourist office and request a guided tour or potter the lanes independently to discover ancient fountains, wash basins, the feudal castle and the Saint Etienne church. Cadenet is now a cultural hub with summer-time exhibitions and productions in the open air theatre.

Since the 19th century, the troglodyte inhabitants of Cadenet have shared their popular activity of basketry, a few artists can still be found in the village or visit the Basketry Museum to see their creations before heading down to the lake to meet locals on the beach or go for a refreshing dip on a hot summer’s day.
