Kathy, Charley and Kelly's Best of Provence - Hiking in the Luberon
Kathy Wood (Kaydee)
The Falaise at Lioux
Time: Two-and-a-half hours
Map: IGN Blue map - 3242 OT (Apt) - on the very edge of this map
Conditions: A little bit of road-walking, then along a farm road/dirt path. Gradual ascent to the top of the falaise, then walking on rocks on top of the cliff. Easy descent.
This is a fairly easy hike that takes you to the small village of Lioux and then along the top of this amazing rock cliff that seems to rise up out of nowhere. We love this hike because the cliff is so unexpected (and not visible from the south) and the views are so special.
