A stunning, picturesque village, a photographer’s dream with the river running through the centre. Plenty of shops, but mainly of the tourist variety, and a good selection of cafes and restaurants. You have to take the walk up to the source of the river visiting...More

Amazing natural scenery! Could not get enough of the cascading river! Town is nice, but the water is the main attraction. Make sure to take the short hike to the source; worth every step!

Saw quite a lot of tourists but it shows the natural sides of Provence, France. Not too many souvenirs shops nor restaurants. Great place to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon beside the lake.

Easy enough to find and this village has everything you could wish for. Boutique shops to tempt you and the wares were not at expensive prices either. Wandering up the hill you can get wonderful views of the place and the water wheel at the...More
