Stay in Provence
Visit the most beautiful villages of Provence
From the hotel Les Bories & Spa, you can easily visit Gordes and Bonnieux, two of the most beautiful villages in France, but also the whole Provence and Luberon with its famous typical villages.
A few kilometers as the crow flies from Gordes, you will find the medieval abbey of Notre-Dame de Sénanque, the mysterious "Fontaine de Vaucluse", the unfathomable chasm of Saint Véran.
Do not miss Roussillon, a village of artists and potters famous for its ochers, or the city of Avignon. Then, continue to the beautiful landscapes of Provence.
If you like theater or opera, do not miss the Lacoste festival. This event, created by Pierre Cardin around twelve years ago, allows the audience to discover young singers within surprising carries of the Marquis de Sade castle.
