This village stands out from the rest of the villages in Luberon with its ochre colour hilltop cliffs. Must see and photograph village. Recommend parking down below and walking up through the streets to see the different coloured houses.

This village should be visited by everyone who loves beauty. The setting and colors of the earth are matched by those of the town, a protected monument for 80 yr.
