Lagnes - The village



Lagnes is a charming small provencal village strategically located close to the Luberon and its famous villages, Gordes, Roussillon, Ménerbes, Bonnieux... all a must...!


Lagnes - Church



Lagnes is also very close to Isle sur Sorgue famous for its antiques and fashionable shops... and just a few km from Fontaine de Vaucluse with its waterfalls, the famous Abbaye de Sénanque or the market at Cavaillon, a colorful sight...!

Lagnes - Bell tower


Lagnes climbs up the hillside from the foot of the Piei rock. The village is looked over by the XIIIth century chateau (rebuilt in the XVIth and XVIIth) which gives the village a very Medieval atmosphere.

Don't forget to climb up to the summit of the village because there are magnificent panoramic views over the whole Luberon region, to the Alpilles and with a bit of luck on a clear day you will glimpse the Cévennes.



Lagnes - Square
In the village itself there are pleasant walks to be had around the quaint, narrow streets bordered by the ancient village house and their floral displays which give the village its charm.

You'll pass by residences which date back to the XVIth and XVIIth centuries as well as a few covered passageways. You can also admire the ancient village washing area which was previously the Penitents Blancs chapel, sculpture, arts and crafts exhibitions throughout the summer period.
