Great glimpse into history

Loved this place. Much quieter than Gordes! Crazy tiny road added to the adventure. Well preserved and fun to explore.

If you've seen these types of structures before, you don't really need to go. Quite basic and we felt expensive for what it is, €24.00 for 4 adults and 1 child...

Going up to Gordes from the Abbey is a magnificent sights of those fences made of flat stones, when we see this particular place , we're amazed by the designs of more than 20 artworks home or hut made of dry flat stones, it's fantastic to watch and feel the materials they made.

It is amazing, what people could built up already hundret years ago. We had been in the small village on a very hot day. If you go inside this old houses it is quite cool inside. You find the living rooms, some ofen, storage rooms.

If you are in the area, this is one not to miss: do NOT park at the first parking lot, keep driving down a tiny road and park quite close to the little stone village. The buildings are amazing, the layout is almost Neanderthal in looks. the stone work is delight ful and you will take many good pictures here!... More

The road that leads to the place is a beauty..very typical provence/south of France . you are welcomed by a charming lady, passioned by people and by the history of Les Bories, she will advise you on how to proceed to see the best of the pace. finally the place is mythical, filled with mystery. great value for money.

We thought it was a living village, but it is a restored historic site. Just fascinating, and easy to understand. The drive to it is pretty tight mountain roads, but worth it.

The village of the Bories is a place with incredible preservation. It is better to go by car. It is easy to find the local and to park. The houses made of stone were used a long time ago, and are well preserved until now. You will need less than one hour to see everything. Use confortable shoes because the... More

For someone who likes historical sites, this is a must. The village of the Bories is a gem. The dry stone construction is amazing and the work that was done to reconstruct them after they had fallen into disrepair is brilliant. To see how the people who lived there leaves you in disbelief. If you are in the area, go... More
