Village des Bories, Gordes

3.6
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.

  • Pleasant visit to this village of dry stones. The village is very sparse and austere. It captures the life of the former occupants.

  • village of building stone by stone, remarkable. to discover to admire the work done by the ancients.

  • The price of 6 euros is expensive for 45-minute visits. The village of the bories is to see, but for people in the cities, for a country boy like me, I wouldn't find out. I was not wowed by this visit.

  • Interesting but not much more, be warned if you are in a camper van it's a long walk to the village,
  • Very nice place
  • A bit out of the way, but interesting to go through. Gives you a real feel for life of peasants relying on neighbors to build everything needed to live, including your home. Very moving.
  • Very interesting meeting with the ancient times. Good explanations in each building.
  • Wonderful place .
