The award-winning sublime commune of Eguisheim is renowned for its many breathtaking vistas. Famously dubbed as “France's Favorite Village”, the commune boasts a bevy of picture-perfect sights, structures and more. Adding to its old-school charm is the ensemble of striking architectural marvels that adorn the streets of this commune. Looking straight out of a fairytale is the ethereal Vieille ville d'Eguisheim, while the modest façade of the Église Saints-Pierre-et-Paul d'Eguisheim packs unmatched heritage within. In addition to the breathtaking beauty of the environs, Eguisheim gained fame as the place of origin of the popular Alsatian wine. Developed to its current glory by the Duke of Alsace, Eguisheim is a must-visit destination.

Attraverso corridoi sotteranei segreti gli abitanti durante gli assedi procuravano nuove proviste. A lungo la città fortificata di Ménerbes era considerata completamente inespugnabile e resistette durante le guerre di religione nel 500 per 15 mesi ad un assedio da parte dei cattolici. Le belle ville medievali e rinascimentali incantavano numerosi artisti. Notevole è anche il museo dei cavatappi nel quale ne sono esposte 1.000 varianti.

Non è stato il bel panorama, ma la paura a spingere gli abitanti su in cima della collina. Ripetutamente Gordes aveva dovuto affrontare assalti e invasioni. La posizione elevata sulla montagna nonché l'impianto di fortificazione dovevano difendere gli abitanti. La fortezza del X secolo trasformato nel 500 in un castello rinascimentale, fino ad oggi attrae tanti visitatori. Intanto a Gordes si possono sentire completamente al sicuro e godere con calma del panorama.

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'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.
