Not only that, but it could take a lifetime to fully explore the splendor this country has to offer. Here is a collection of some gorgeous towns that are definitely worth adding to your travel bucket list.


Eguisheim

As per archaeological evidences, Eguisheim was inhabited during the Paleolithic Era. It is known to be the origin of Alsace wine as wine cultivation was introduced in the region by the Romans when they conquered the place. This beautiful village got its present structure by the Dukes of Alsace who developed it in the Middle Ages. Strolling through this quaint village is like taking a walk in a bygone era with its bright medieval structures and flower adornments. Nestled in the midst of vineyards and lush hills, this picturesque commune is worth the visit.

Gordes

Die Gemeinde besaß ein Renaissanceschloss, das verfiel. Da kam der Künstler Victor Vasarély, pachtete die Ruine für einen Franc und eröffnete 1970 mit Pomp und Pariser Prominenz das Museum seiner Selbstdarstellung. Als das Projekt pleite ging, hielt das niemand vom Besuch in Gordes ab. Von der Sonne beschienen oder von Scheinwerfern illuminiert, hockt ein auf alt gestyltes Ensemble auf dem Felsen. Schön ist's, wenn die Kirschen blühen oder die Eichen rot werden. In einem Tal 4 km von Gordes liegt die Abbaye de Sénanque, 1148 von Zisterziensern gegründet. Großartige romanische Architekur.

Collonges-la-Rouge

As the name itself might be a dead giveaway, Collonges-la-Rouge is a small village with a very unique feature- every building here is made from red sandstone, the color created by iron oxide deposits. The medieval towers, houses and church buildings mesmerize with their uniform hues, which is an amazing contrast with the surrounding verdant hills and blue skies. Tourist value aside, it is also an important stop during the famous pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostela, adding further cultural importance to its name.

Saint-Cirq-Lapopie

Saint-Cirq-Lapopie's geography is very unique, making it a popular tourist destination for its vantage point alone. The village is situated almost 100 meters (328 feet) above the Lot river, almost hugging the cliff surface, its streets gradually descending down the slope, creating unique vantage points throughout the village. Historic grey stone houses and villas dot the landscape, as they line up the winding roads, a rich legacy which has been maintained excellently for centuries. Also a favorite among French painters and artists, it fast becomes clear why this particular place inspired them.
