Hill Towns Of The Luberon

Today we visited three of the Luberon regions Hill Towns. These towns are incredible with so much rich history, personality and views.

  Lacoste lies in the shadow of its looming castle. As we climbed through this photogenic village of narrow cobblestone roads and arches, we made it to the base of the castle of the Marquis de Sade (1740-1814) He was notorious for hosting orgies behind the walls and for kidnapping peasants for scandalous purposes......

Bonnieux is a smaller town with not a lot of activity, however the views were spectacular!
Siagnon sits up high on a rocky spur overlooking the valley below, as most hill towns do.

It was here that we stumbled upon a wonderful little deli that served the most fabulous omelet I've ever eaten. And of course, you can't leave town without your daily baguette!!
