Eguisheim

As per archaeological evidences, Eguisheim was inhabited during the Paleolithic Era.

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.

Ménerbes

En cas de siège, des couloirs souterrains secrets permettaient aux habitants d'accéder à un nouveau ravitaillement. Longtemps, la forteresse de Ménerbes passa pour absolument imprenable. Pendant les guerres de religion au XVIe siècle, la ville résista au siège des catholiques pendant 15 mois. Les belles villas datant du Moyen-Âge ou de la Renaissance attirent aujourd'hui de nombreux artistes. A voir également : le musée du tire-bouchon qui recèle 1.000 variantes de cet accessoire indispensable aux amateurs de vin.

Gordes

Si les habitants décidèrent de s'installer en haut sur la montagne, c'est moins pour la vue que pour échapper aux attaques et invasions de toutes sortes. Ainsi perchés et rassurés par la forteresse qui date du Xe siècle, les habitants reprirent peu à peu confiance. La forteresse qui, au XVIe siècle, fut remaniée en château Renaissance, continue d'attirer nombre de visiteurs qui, aujourd'hui, peuvent jouir de la vue sans aucune crainte.

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.
