A steep walk up but worth it for the views. Takes around thirty minutes up and down at a slow pace. Places to eat and drink in the small town are good.

We only discovered the ‘Chateau’ (more a fortified settlement) while on holiday in the area when spotting its dramatic outline on the horizon while driving back from a previous day out. The charm of this place lies mainly in the dramatic setting, rather than the quality of its built remains, but it is no poorer for this fact. There is ample free parking at the bottom of the hill down ‘Chemin de la Bruyere’ (near the public swimming pool) and this allows a gentle stroll into the village, which then meanders up the hill. The village itself has nothing of particular historic note to look around, but the streets are pleasantly quiet and there are a few old buildings or architectural features of interest as you make your way as far as the church, whereupon the path to the Chateau leads off on the left and climbs up to the hillside via a fortified passageway. Once atop the hillside (it’s free to visit) you can then wander for several hundred metres along the spine of the hill and among the remains of the old settlement which culminate at the chapel, fronted by a small walled garden (the chapel doesn’t seem to be open to the public). The views from this hillside are stunning, but come prepared with a hat, sun cream and water if the weather is hot. Rather than retracing your steps to the village, go past the chapel and follow the track left into the shallow valley, then back below the side of the hillside as far as the reservoir for a good view of the fortifications on this side of the hill. This also provides an opportunity for a picnic at the water’s edge, and a chance to cool your feet! You can then return to the village via the bridge across the water.

We walked up to the Chateau on a sunny afternoon in mid June. Make sure to wear a hat or sunscreen as the clean French air combines with intense sun and you will burn before you realize it. The view of the surrounding countryside was so amazing and there were poppies, sedums and other wildflowers in full bloom to enjoy on your trip up and down. I wish we had known about how to approach the bridge surrounding the reservoir, so that we could have seen the castle and church from that angle as well, bet it was spectacular. It was a great way to start our stay in this beautiful area of the Luberon.

There are beautiful views from the top onto the valley so be sure to stop if en route to Sault. Not a must if only touring Luberon.
