The Pavillon de Galon was built at the end of the 18th century as a hunting lodge.[1] It is located in Cucuron, in Vaucluse, on the south side of the Luberon mountain range of southern France.

Its 5 hectare[2] garden, which contains a contemporary garden à la française created in 2004,[1] was awarded the "Remarkable Garden" label by the French Ministry of Culture & Environment in 2010.[2] Such a label is awarded for 5 years and requires the garden to be open to the public at least 40 days per year.[3]
