  • Simple, pretty setting. You really want it to me more historical. That's the feeling you get. It is historical and if you knew more about the salt trade and the importance of the pass his town guarded it would help. We visited this place quite a bit and walked and ran through the the gardens.
  • When ur in Provence, a visit to the villages of the Luberon is a must! Take a look!
  • Really interesting place and history, the view is amazing and the visit is worth it! If you are around, definitely a place to visit!
  • Very simple but beautiful. Worth visit to the town.
