Beware, you might get a stiff neck !
A charming village at the foot of a gigantic cliff
While going to Lioux, you will WANT to contemplate the Cliff of the Madeleine, 700 meters long and 30 million years old and right you are !
Although the village is located in the Luberon Regional Nature Park, the limestone formation marks the geological thrust of the Monts du Vaucluse. A nice in-between where to enjoy the sound of cicadas and the shade of the woody valleys.
Hannibal himself propably visited it ! That's why you will find an elephant on the village coat of arms. And this is not the only celebrity who came to admire the place ! In the village, there were no less than four castles, restored or not !
Even, the couturier Pierre Cardin has settled in one of them, will you guess which one ? You can also admire the remains of some windmills, or look at the church of Saint-Romain, a beautiful Romanesque building that will make you appreciate the calm of this quaint Provencal setting.
