The great variety of landscapes of the Vaucluse is the result of a contrast between plain and mountainous massifs.

In the silty lowlands of this plain, the Mediterranean climate and irrigation allowed the intensive cultivation of fruits and vegetables sheltered from the mistral by cypress hedges.

 

The tall, stony terraces, drier, bear A.O.C. vineyards: Côtes du Rhône southern, Côtes du Ventoux, Côtes du Luberon, and orchards (cherry trees, olive trees among others). All around, from the north-west to the south-east, rise the mountain massifs.
