Super farmers market with all sorts of goodies. A splendid place with a colorful history. Superior views from this hillside fortress. A definite must stop and visit. But park your car outside the city walls and walk in. The cars are not suited for driving...More

One of the many beautiful picturesque towns to walk through for that classic Provence experience. Worth a stroll and have a good pair of walking shoes. This town is relatively small; it is not a full day experience.

To be honest I expected this village to be much more beautiful based on how much it is praised. Nevertheless it is nice to stroll around. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for problems with parking your car.

We parked in the Gendarmerie car park, which is just off the last bend of the road, before reaching the village coming in on Rue de la Combe/D15. From the car park it was a 350 metre walk into the village, (Google Maps). We left...More

The best this village has to offer is the breathtaking view of the village itself as one drives in. The village is charming and so is the castle. I personally do not feel the village is outstanding, I have visited other perched villages in France...More

The view of the old town of Gordes and the Luberon Valley from the "Town View Point" is very spectacular. However the village is very touristic and not much different from all the other villages in the Luberon. So once you have enjoyed the scenic...More

It's way prettier from far way than actually on it... Absurdly small, with expensive (and bad) restaurants, and nothing to see it, looks like a movie set. I love small villages, but I wouldn't stay on this particular one... More
