So much to see. First you drive into a small square where there is lots of parking. Then wander over to Information to get your map, then do the loop.

I have already written a review on this medieval village, a must visit , lovely artisan shops, artisan ice cream, you are in the area of violetes. Lovely people and the terrace is the most spectacular. Only the parking is the problem.

I went on this tour with my wife during our recent holiday to the South of France and I would thoroughly recommend it. It was very well put together, informative, fun and a great way to learn about the region.
