The village of Ménerbes in the Luberon is one of the "most beautiful villages in France" and offers every visitor its unique character and authenticity.
Many celebrities and famous artists have taken up residence here and visitors from all over the world flock to the village to soak up the spirit and atmosphere.
Inevitably, the village and its environs have evolved as it is built, rebuilt, renovated. Its preservation is the responsibility of each of us, not least each successive Mayor.
However, the evolution of construction techniques and the desire for economic profitability sometimes forces choices that are incompatible with this desire to preserve. he Association was created in 2013 to oppose a building project opposite the village washhouse. This was successful and the Association is now maintained to bring together under its membership various skills in urban planning, law and arts and crafts, with the aims of:
Learn about public or private projects.
Establishing an exchange with the municipal council.
Seeking legal remedies when necessary.
Raising awareness amongst property owners and ensuring their compliance with regulations.
In short, the dialogue, the exchange of ideas and the combination of individual skills makes it possible to work collectively to combine aesthetics, architecture, history and economics.
Thank you to all our members for their loyal and friendly support.
The Association is one of general interest and is registered at the Prefecture of Apt under reference W84 100 2109.
