Perched on a rock and stands on the edge of the Vaucluse plateau, Gordes among one of "the most beautiful villages in France " where many celebrities and artists have taken up residence.

The terrible insecurity due to multiple invasions over the centuries forced the rural population to take refuge in the hills. This is the origin of this hilltop village. The strategic value of this fortified village will continue throughout the Middle Ages and part of the Renaissance, especially during the Wars of Religion.

Gordes is located in the heart of the Luberon and is a major center of interest, but also the starting point for many visits as many hilltop villages nearby Roussillon and the ocher trail, Colorado Provencal or Fontaine de Vaucluse.
