Gordes is a very beautiful old village, perched on the southern edge of the high Plateau de Vaucluse in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, France. The stone buildings built in tight against the base of the cliffs and those perched on the rocks above, including the 12th-century castle, are made of an beige stone that glows orange in the morning sun. The view from the village is a southern panorama out across fields and forests and small perched villages to the Montagne du Luberon. Gordes is one of the "in" villages of Luberon where many movies stars and artists have made their home. Due to its privileged position, its exceptional charm and its typical architecture, Gordes has been listed as "one of the most beautiful villages of France".
