Village des Bories, Gordes

(3.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Visit Village des Bories for a close-up look at the ruins of a small hamlet from Napoleonic times. Wander through this open-air museum to examine about 20 dry stone huts that were used primarily for agricultural reasons. Some of them comprised part of a Gordoise nave--a multipurpose area used as a seasonal dwelling, a tool shed, or even a sheep shelter.

  • Original site because of the type of constructions presented. The walk is not long. Well, the houses have been restored. The visit is still not given. Is especially true for its originality.

  • 2km of roads before reaching the free parking in the village. I agree with some previous opinion: entrance € 6 per adult is too expensive. The habitat is interesting to discover if you have the time to kill but no more...

  • The museum village of the Bories with streets, enclosures + threshing places was restored after painstaking restoration. The Bories are rounded or pointed upwards simple cottages, which were built of dry, layered together without mortar stones

  • Interesting to explore a bygone way of life.
  • Just like an alien sci-fi movie set!
  • Interesting village with a beautiful heritage preservation. On the other hand, plate given to hospitality with a plan that does not match anything. Difficult to move in the village. Very little explanation would suffice yet of little things to improve the visit, knowing that the site is managed by the city of Gordes (common where the parking rates are still high)

  • Pretty village restored by a private. Nevertheless the entrance fee is not justified in my opinion. Very sketchy home, very little explanation. The correction of the child questionnaire is to do same se, jaded cashier by trade. The readings and videos will replace human guide and visit loses its charm! For once parking is free in this region!
