5. Visit the ancient stone village of Les Baux

lesbauxAlthough one of the most visited spots in France, Les Baux is well worth braving the potential crowds of other tourists. It’s located about 25 km south of Avignon just past the small town of Saint Remy de Provence, sitting precariously on a 245-meter high limestone baou (which means rocky spur in Provençal). The unique, spectacular village has been home to humans since 6,000 BCE, and during the Middle Ages was home to the most powerful feudal lords in southern France.

The dramatic rocks and cliffs overlooking a valley full of olive groves and vineyards have long inspired authors and artists, and is even said to be the inspiration for Dante Aligheri’s descriptions of Purgatory in the Inferno. It is a truly spectacular spot and shouldn’t be missed on a trip to Provence
