South of the Luberon, 2 km from the village of Cucuron, lies camping site Le Moulin à Vent. From here you have a beautiful view of the mountains. The spacious campsite in natural setting can be found between vineyards and orchards and measures some 2.5 ha. There are many old oak trees on the grounds. The region is quite touristy with a large number of attractions and many small, characteristic Provençal villages.
Le Moulin à Vent is a real nature camping site in a forest providing lots of shade. The pitches are spacious, not all the same size and laid out on terraces. The camping site does not have its own swimming pool; the nearest place for swimming is a lake, some 10 km away. The camping site also does not have a restaurant. Coffee, bread and breakfast can be obtained from the reception. The pizza truck stops by once a week.
Walking and cycling
You will find a great many signposted walking and cycling routes in the area, as well as the regional nature reserve Luberon, to the north of the camping site. A visit to one or more wineries surrounding the camping site is also a possibility, of course.
Camping Le Moulin à Vent would serve as an excellent base for a longer sojourn in the Provence. Its central location allows you to make day trips to several interesting sights before returning to the peace and quiet of Cucuron at the end of the day. You could, for instance, visit the flamingoes of the Camargue, the beaches of Calanques or the Gorges du Verdon.

We stopped here on our way to the Toulon area and ended up staying 8 nights and only left then because they were closing.
A really nice site, in the countryside surrounded by fields of vines and the local pumpkins. Peaceful and all the surrounding roads are small, very quiet and super for walks. Local town is picturesque with a large pond around which is a weekly market. A supermarket, butscher and baker in the town. The bar/restaurant by the lake was popular but being charged €3 for a small lemonade, we gave it a miss!
The pitches are of good size and fairly level well separated under fir trees allowing sunlight with patches of shade. We missed the café, visiting pizza van and even most of the bread orders at the end of the season. Owners super friendly and helpful. Facilities spotless with loo paper, hand soap, drier, separate wash cubicles all anyone could need. Absolutely super site.
In caravan with mover so easy to get into sloping pitch. AIry open site with shade from tall trees with views . A pool would be lovely but would detract from the peacefulness. Lovely clean washblock. Owners very welcoming. Cuceron lovely village with shady fish pool, within walking distance & with small supermarket.
Zeer gezellige camping, mooie zonnige en schaduwrijke plaatsen. Heel vriendelijk een joviale eigenaars. Heel mooi vernieuwd sanitair.
Mooie uitstappen in de omgeving, zowel met de auto of te voet. Spijtig genoeg is er toch een groot minpunt! De campnig is gekoloniseerd door Nederlanders!
