The hike up through the ruined streets of Oppede le Vieux, the old city, was like stepping into a movie or a fantasy. The ancient crumbling stone buildings surrounded by trees, the narrow winding paths and stone staircases, the beautiful church and decrepit fort at...More

The ancient, largely ruined village of Oppede le Vieux is found up the mountainside beyond the modern village of Oppede on the plain. It is worth a visit to enjoy the lovely walk up from the parking area, along wooded pathways to the pretty place...More

What seems to have started as a wine trail review has morphed into a review about roaming the old abandoned village. Knowing how it is sometimes pointless to try add the correct attraction name, I'll just join in on this site :-) We whole-heartedly agree...More

Magnificent small medieval village topped by a fortress and a nicely restored old church. Park your car at the municipal parking (3 euros) and just walk up to the village and beyond. The climbing is steep at times, but the village has a couple of...More

This village was recommended by our B&B hosts. But after reading about it in one of our guidebooks, we almost didn't visit. Thank goodness, we didn't listen to the guidebook. We were fascinated by the history of this deserted gem and enjoyed discovering the various...More

Park, stroll slowly, savor both the still in ruins and the restored, get away from the overrun villages and just soak in the sense of the past.

This is a beautiful hillside village with history that goes back many centuries. The village itself is small so (even though you can drive through it on the small road) you need park in a designated parking area for a small fee, and then walk/hike...More

This village is delightful - a far cry from the other chic, "preserved" villages of the Luberon. Leaving the car at the foot of the hill you clamber up through the village (difficult for those with mobility problems) to the castle and church at the...More
