Hard to believe that shepherds still lived in these small stone rooms until the late 1800s. Part of the area was for sheep and the other for the shepherd. Apparently, these are found all over the world. Take a hat if it's a sunny day...More

After visiting the village of Gordes, we drove on to the Village des Bories to see the dry stone construction of these unique structures dating back hundreds of years. Perhaps the most memorable part of the experience was the drive down twisting, narrow lanes lined...More

interesting place to visit close to Gordes . The place is authentic - houses hundreds years old.... I recommend to bike over there since the road is very narrow

Detoured here from the main road to Gordes. The drive in/out might be considered more of an adventure than the site itself. Basically a small village of dry stone laid buildings. Easy to dismantle and move by farmers/herders. Fairly interesting but not for everyone. Does...More
