All reviews beautiful village shops and restaurants hill overlooking spectacular views magnificent sight vantage point town view luberon valley the cliff perched villages cobblestone streets minute drive mid day definitely worth a visit white stone park your car south of france
Super farmers market with all sorts of goodies. A splendid place with a colorful history. Superior views from this hillside fortress. A definite must stop and visit. But park your car outside the city walls and walk in. The cars are not suited for driving...More
One of the many beautiful picturesque towns to walk through for that classic Provence experience. Worth a stroll and have a good pair of walking shoes. This town is relatively small; it is not a full day experience.
Built against a steep wall this century old city wit impressively well kept buildings. Nice to have a walk around. Be aware of the uneven paved walk ways and the steep ascends/descends. Not for wheelchairs.
When we visited it was market and really crowded. There...More
To be honest I expected this village to be much more beautiful based on how much it is praised. Nevertheless it is nice to stroll around. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for problems with parking your car.
Park at the municipal car park before the village and walk in. On the way stop and admire the beautiful cliff face facade of the village. The place was besieged by Germans during the war, according Info Points along the way.
The steep, narrow streets...More
We parked in the Gendarmerie car park, which is just off the last bend of the road, before reaching the village coming in on Rue de la Combe/D15. From the car park it was a 350 metre walk into the village, (Google Maps). We left...More
The best this village has to offer is the breathtaking view of the village itself as one drives in. The village is charming and so is the castle. I personally do not feel the village is outstanding, I have visited other perched villages in France...More
The view of the old town of Gordes and the Luberon Valley from the "Town View Point" is very spectacular. However the village is very touristic and not much different from all the other villages in the Luberon. So once you have enjoyed the scenic...More
It's way prettier from far way than actually on it... Absurdly small, with expensive (and bad) restaurants, and nothing to see it, looks like a movie set. I love small villages, but I wouldn't stay on this particular one... More
It's way prettier from far way than actually on it... Absurdly small, with expensive (and bad) restaurants, and nothing to see it, looks like a movie set. I love small villages, but I wouldn't stay on this particular one, Roussillon and Bonnieux are small villages more authentic and less pricier, imo.

Yes, you are allowed to enter Gordes by car, but you cannot park in the center, which is not big...drive up into the village, there's a roundabout, turn left out of the center, and there's a car park further up on the street... More
Yes, you are allowed to enter Gordes by car, but you cannot park in the center, which is not big...drive up into the village, there's a roundabout, turn left out of the center, and there's a car park further up on the street on your left...or park below, as someone else suggested...before Gordes...we always park after, much easier...
With regards to Roussillon, you need to park below, as there's rarely any douces to park up by the village itself, and it's exoensive to park! Enjoy...😉
