You may have seen the stunning hilltop village of Gordes in the film 'A Good Year,' or read about it in Peter Mayle's book - A Year in Provence. One of the most celebrated villages in the region, set in the foothills of the Monts of Vaucluse, it's simply wonderful. Dominated by its church and castle, the village is made up of beige stone buildings clinging to the cliff with a network of narrow cobbled streets that give it real charm. Artists, writers and actors have flocked to Gordes, lured by its beauty not just within the village, but outside of it. Views out over the Luberon valley are spectacular and just outside the village is the photogenic Senanque Abbey with its wonderful lavender field and the mystical Village des Bories, an ancient hamlet of all dry-stone buildings. Gordes Market is on a Tuesday morning where you can appreciate the finest local produce, arts and crafts.
