The village of Lacoste
The charming hilltop village of Lacoste has an exceptional location in the heart of the Luberon Natural Park. The village is overlooked by the castle of the divine Marquis de Sade. It became property of the famous fashion designer Pierre Cardin who also produces a festival of music and theater. A picturesque village.
Oppède le Vieux, Ménerbes, Lourmarin, Lauris, Bonnieux, Ansouis, Gordes, Roussillon,…
These are the more popular, but all the others are also interesting.
The sweetness and light characterize the Luberon, country of castles but also hilltop villages, colorful with ocher cliffs, lavender fields, sunflowers, cherry trees and vineyards, high in flavor with its wines and candied fruits.
The villages are perched in the hillside or huddled around a rocky outcrop and spread out in the sun cascades their roofs. Narrow streets lined with artisan workshops, shady squares, fountains, magnificent views over the plains and vineyards. In the surrounding countries you can see dry-stone huts called bories. Here there are in the air something magical, like a taste of heaven. The feeling of being close to the sky.
