Perhaps the most beautiful and elegant village of the Luberon awaits you on a top of the hill. Made with dry stone, glaring in white, Gordes dominates a large valley with fields of olive trees, almond trees and lavenders. Elegant, it looks like a doll village chiseled in marble. It used to be a nevralgic place for the resistants during World War II. Part of the village has been destroyed by the enemy although most of the war resistants managed to escape and to hide in the bush. It is nowadays a picturesque village visited by tourists from all around the globe. Make time for a coffee, to stroll in the tiny streets and admire the unparallel view from the top of the hill.
