Gordes, the most beautiful village in the world

Gordes was recently voted the most beautiful village in the world by the American magazine Leisure + Travel. A well-deserved distinction, this village has everything to seduce visitors.

You must have seen it everywhere on social networks, Gordes has been elected the most beautiful village in the world by the American magazine Leisure + Travel. This well-deserved distinction brings recognition to this small village in the Luberon, which is already well known to French and foreign visitors. Gordes was ranked first, ahead of a Japanese village and another from the Netherlands.

Provence in the spotlight
This ranking comes some time after the broadcasting of the series Emily in Paris where some episodes take place in Provence and notably in Gordes. Would our typical Provencal village have made the hearts of the Americans capsize? In any case, this village perched on its rock has caused a sensation all over the world. A nice boost for the visibility of France and Provence for tourism. We can therefore expect even more visitors to our region after this nomination. How to visit Gordes off the beaten track? Take the time to travel the roads of Provence and get to Gordes by vintage car.
Visit Gordes by Deudeuche
Aboard a 2CV, a Mehari, a Beetle or a Combi Van, the sensations will not be the same, you will visit the Luberon differently. Vintage and colourful, our cars do not go unnoticed. Share this moment as a couple, with family or friends. For a holiday or a weekend, all occasions are good to enjoy a trip in a vintage car. We give you some ideas to visit Gordes in a different way.

1- The village of Les Bories
Take a trip back in time during this unique visit. This ancient shepherds' village was once used by the shepherds and farmers of the Luberon. The bories are constructions full of beauty and above all ingenuity. The stones are placed one on top of the other without any artifice. A walk to do with your family during your stay in Provence.

2- A guided tour at dusk
The Luberon Coeur de Provence Tourist Office offers guided tours during the summer. In the evening, by the light of the lanterns, visit Gordes. You will see it in a different light (or rather a different night), a moment of culture in a different setting and much appreciated during the hot summer months of July and August. To be booked directly on the tourist office website.

3- The Cellars of the Palais Saint Firmin
Semi-troglodyte, these cellars contain hidden treasures. On three levels, you will find a chapel, numerous vaulted rooms, a bread oven and oil mills. The cellars were actually used for over 50 years for the production of olive oil. A guided tour is available for a fee.

4- The Abbey of Sénanque
The Abbey of Sénanque also deserves your full attention. This emblematic monument still houses Cistercian monks. It impresses by its architecture and the lavender fields that surround it. A visit to the interior of the Abbey is not free.

5- Admire the sunset over Gordes
The sunset will be behind you but the golden light will then reflect on the village. Immortalise the moment with a photo or if you are an artist, draw or paint this magical moment! It will be a great souvenir of your trip to Gordes.Vintage car rental in Provence
