Map

This villa is located near the village of Lacoste, historically associated with the Marquis de Sade, who lived in a castle here and built a theatre. Today it still reflects its ancient origins with paved streets, battlements, a medieval castle, and 15th century houses. Lacoste is also linked to the Vaudois, a Christian sect who met secretly in the village while being pursued by Catholic persecutors. In more recent history, fashion designer Pierre Cardin partially renovated the castle of the Marquis and regularly organizes theatre festivals on site-- making Lacoste a very vibrant part of the culture of the Luberon. Other points of interest in town include a 12th century church and ancient quarries of underground stone. Another nearby town is Bonnieux, one of the finest villages in the area. Wonderful residences dating from the 16th to 18th centuries will remind you why several prominent bishops chose to take up residence here. There is a fantastic array of architecture, including the church tower, rising above the town like a sentinel. If you're feeling up for a little exercise, you can climb 86 steps to the "Vieille Eglise," where there is a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside. Other sights within the village include the 13th century ramparts, 18th century town hall, the church, and a museum devoted to the history of bread! Friday morning is market day, and there are plenty of restaurants to enjoy in town. There are also many other charming towns near this villa, and you can easily take day trips to Avignon or St. Remy.
