Located in the eastern confines of the Vaucluse, Saint-Martin straddles the high valley of the Calavon, between the Luberon and the Monts de Vaucluse. A small peaceful village perched atop a rocky spur, it is looked over by its church. You can not fail to be seduced by the charm of its surrounding countryside, with its lavender fields, its wooded hillsides and green valleys.
