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

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

A small village set into a provencal landscape in Vaucluse. It’s more the atmosphere that will bring you into medieval times that not the buildings, most of them ruined, but don’t miss the climb to the top of the hill to visit the old church....More
