Gordes is the gem of the Luberon valley. After taking a look at the city view photo, many people immediately want to go there and see it. There is something romantic about Gordes. The city is full of life and colors. One can see the Gordes streets in A Good Year, a 2006 film directed and produced by Ridley Scott.

We will continue our journey by visiting a small village called Bonnieux. Its medieval image is a bit rough, but the place is very interesting due to its authenticity and special atmosphere. The village is located on top of a hill, surrounded by high castle walls. We will enjoy beautiful picturesque Luberon valley views from there.

After Bonnieux, we will go to the heart of the vines and olives valley, the the Lourmarin village. It is included into the most beautiful French villages list. We will take a look at the medieval castle and walk through the picturesque streets. Here you can feel the ‘art de vivre’ (‘art of living’). You can try the true Provençal cuisine, known by its character and delicate taste, in any of the 11 restaurants in the village. Auberge la Fenière, a well-known gastronomic restaurant of Reine Sammut is located here.
