“Nice but too expensive ticket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2014

Lacoste is really a charming and beautiful city. The castle on top offers picturesque views but those you can see even without paying 10€ for entry. It is better to spend them on a good wine

“Delightful lunch and wander”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Lacoste was the third stop in our Luberon morning behind Gordes and Fussillon. We enjoyed lunch at a cafe at the foot of the village with a lovely terrace and a view over the valley below. Following lunch we wandered the narrow streets up to the Chateaux. The stone paving is highly polished in places and so 'grippy' soled shoes are handy. Another worthwhile stop in a lovely area.

“Breathtaking Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

I had the opportunity to live at SCAD for two months in January - March 2012. It was the best experience of my life so far! The Chateau is a great place to visit and well worth the walk from the bottom of the village to the very top. The views are stunning and the very top is a typically peaceful spot to just relax and soak in the beautiful views of the valley below. Unfortunately when I was there the Chateau was undergoing renovations and I wasn't able to visit the inside in detail until the very last day in Lacoste someone bribed a worker to open the doors for us. We got a quick peak around for about 15 minutes and it was so beautiful on the inside- even amid the renovations. I would absolutely love to go back to Lacoste to see how much it's changed.

“Charming, medieval, picturesque....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Lacoste is a less visited part of Luberon. Big mistake. Its got all the charm of the more famous towns and of course the castle. Walking through the [crowdless] cobble stone streets makes you contemplate life in medieval French town. Climb to castle is steep, but short - maybe 10 minutes. Wear sturdy shoes. Views from the top are spectacular. So is the view of the castle approaching from Roussilion (stop at the 2000 year Roman bridge)

“Fascinating hilltop village large with interesting history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

A fascinating walk (climb) through the narrow stone streets of this picturesque hilltop village to the chateau & spectacular view at the top. Famous for the chateau's former infamous owner the Marquis de Sade it is now owned by Pierre Cardin & hosts artists schools & summer music performances. We didn't go into the chateau, but enjoyed the quirky juxtaposition of crumbling decaying grandeur with modern sculptures.
