Our ticket for the light show included the Chateau which is a ruined castle at the top of Les Baux village. No extra charge for the audio guides. Wished our grandkids could’ve seen and climbed the remnants and ramparts.

We did a morning visit from Aix and were not disappointed. Very windy on the top but great views across the area if you can stand the climb :-)

You cannot drive all the way up to the Chateau but you can get pretty close! There is public parking for a fee. Carrieres de Lumieres is very close by - no need to move your car! I believe Sundays get quite busy. The... More
