The Luberon does not count anymore the beautiful stories that chose it for their set. Without being exhaustive, we can mainly quote movies adapted from the works of Marcel Pagnol: “Manon des Sources” and “Jean de Florette” (Vaugines, Mirabeau, Ansouis…) and the beautiful natural landscapes in “La Gloire de mon Père” and “Le Château de ma Mère”.

The village of Grambois represented the village of La Treille, and its sqaure served as a set for the scenes of petanque and return of the bartavelles’ hunt. We suggest you today to dive back into this cinematographic richness by traveling in our emblematic villages which were the cradle of so many beautiful and rich stories.


La Gloire de mon Père by Yves Robert in 1990: scenes in the village of La Treille (return of the bartavalles’ hunt, petanque, picture in front of the fountain, the bakery nowadays disappeared…).

Young Marcel Pagnol comes in Provence with all his family for the summer holidays. Child of the city, it is the discovery of nature, big spaces and the pride to have a good hunter father. Holidays which will left his mark on his childhood memories forever.

Le Château de ma Mère by Yves Robert in 1991: scene in the village of La Treille.

Marcel's adolescence, his discovery of love, the return of friendship and the great departures to his dear hills where to arrive faster, all the family passes in secret on a private domain.

Mafiosa by Hugues Pagan (French series from 2006 to 2014). A story about Corsican bandits.
