Where can you photograph the fields of poppies?

In this article, discover the spots where to photograph the fields of poppies towards L'Isle sur la Sorgue, Fontaine de Vaucluse and Le Thor!

Poppy fields are back in the Luberon! This bright red flower, yet so fragile, heralds the beginning of summer. The poppy gives a colorful touch to our wheat fields and gardens starting in May.

We have selected three spots around our home for you to capture beautiful images!


On the road from L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue towards Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, you will come across this vast field of poppies. Take the Pigeolet path on your right. The light is magnificent at sunset as it reflects off the cliffs of the Monts de Vaucluse in the background.
