The Chateau is most interesting. It is well worth a stop. It is hard to believe when you see how people lived long ago. Nice walk among shops (seemed to be the lowest prices for lavender sachets).

There is no denying this is a beautiful village in a dramatic setting. If you are going here try to go early before the tour buses arrive. It gets very crowded and uncomfortable after about 11:00 in the morning.

A magnificent setting with a good audio guide. Just great to scramble over the ruins and take it all in. Make sure you see the model of what it looked like in the gift shop before you explore.
