Located in the southern part of the Luberon, La Tour d'Aigues is a pleasant village on the banks of the River Eze within the Parc Naturel Régional du Luberon.
Essentially an agricultural centre, La Tour d'Aigues is surrounded by cultivated fields and vinefields which produce a well respected wine.
The Tour d'Aigues château will remind you of certain Renaissance château in the Loire valley or in the Ile de France, notably because it was based on their designs.
The elegant proportions of its XVIth C. facade make a surprising contrast with other plainer chateau in the area. With its theatrical decor it's easy to imagine the past splendour of this Renaissance edifice especially while you admire the still intact gateway which takes the form of a splendid triumphal arch, one of the most beautiful in Provence.
Each summer the château hosts the South Luberon theater, music and dance festival.
