La Véloroute - Voie Verte du Calavon
“La Véloroute de Calavon”, The Greenway Cycle route : The Ultimate Family cycling outing, no cars no gradient !
This itinerary uses for the majority of its length, the old railway line route from Cavaillon – Apt – Volx.
The entire distance, except for 2 km / 1 ¼ miles at “Le Chene”, is greenway.
“La Véloroute” (cycle path) begins near the village of Coustellet, then follow the Calavon valley and finishes at the foot of the Luberon on the D 48 which continues through to Castellet.
It is a very pleasant route along which one can see a Roman bridge, cross the town of Apt in total safety on viaducs and with beautiful view. The country side becomes even more beautiful along the banks of the Calavon and the slopes of the Luberon with its high perched villages.
The circuit “Autour du Luberon” takes up the route once you arrive at the end of this linear itinerary.
