  • Following a nerve-wracking drive down impossibly narrow roads (and thinking you must have missed a turning), you end up at this fascinating site. A very number of very rare dry stone building exist...

  • We really enjoyed visiting the village of Bories after going to Gourdes for the day. It is reasonably priced to visit- approx €6 per person. There is a little map and visitor centre with a video...

  • You'll have driven to Gordes for its pretty views and then driven away in shock at how many other people had the same idea and filled all the car parks. So, enjoy the views from your car whilst you queue to get out of the car park, then drive to Bories to experience somewhere unique and up close.
  • Small but worth a visit. Nothing to make you go “wow” but worth seeing these stone dwellings because they look interesting. They’ve existed in some form since prehistoric times. We spent 30 mins here. There’s a short video with English subtitles to explain things.
