Luberon 2013 trip - hotels already booked up 11 months in advance?

Planning on visiting the south of France at the end of August/beginning of September 2013. I've been noodling on various websites to check on hotel rates in the Luberon at that time, and am shocked at how many show accommodations are completely booked and not available for various 3-4 night stays I'm trying within a two week stretch. DH thinks it's because its too early for rooms to have been "released" yet to some of the various travel sites (expedia, booking, veneer). However, I even tried a few hotel websites directly and encountered the same problem. Any ideas how far in advance one needs to book for summer in the Luberon?

Thanks

I don't know the Luberon, but for Europe in general I think it's too early. FWIW, you can't book airline reservations more than 330 days into the future.

I'm surprised, never had that problem.
A few sites, that I won't name, promote the Luberon.
But I prefer les Alpilles anyway.

Thank you for your quick replies. Based on Jean's comments regarding airline bookings, maybe DH is right and I'm just looking too early (but its so hard not to when I'm so excited for the trip). I'll take a deep breath and just keep looking.

Thank you both!
