Les Baux-de-Provence The Essential
Highly recommended
Standing out from the Alpilles, the village of Les Baux is set on a stark rocky spur 900m long and 200m wide with vertical ravines on either side. A fortified castle, destroyed by Richelieu in 1632, continues to keep watch over the old stone houses which blend in so wonderfully with this extraordinary site. A magical experience is to be had strolling through the village streets (Place St Vincent, Hôtel Porcelet), as is taking in the view from the keep over the Aix region, Sainte Victoire, the Luberon, Mt Ventoux and the Cévennes.
