Perched on the foothills of the Vau­cluse moun­tains, Gordes is one of Provence’s most im­pres­sive vil­lages over­look­ing the Luberon coun­try­side. Nar­row cob­ble­stone streets, known as calades, flanked with white stone houses built into the cliff wind their way around the vil­lage cen­tre. Un­sur­pris­ingly, Gordes has at­tracted nu­mer­ous artists over the years, in­clud­ing An­dré Lhote, Marc Cha­gall, Vic­tor Vasarely and Flem­ish-born painter Pol Mara, whose works are dis­played in the mu­seum lo­cated in Gorde’s château, which sits at the very top of the vil­lage. gordes-vil­lage.com
