Les Baux-de-Provence, When To Go,
Standing on Les- Baux's ancient walls overlooking the olive groves and vineyards makes it worth the hike.
Perhaps the most visited village in the Alpilles Hills, Les Baux-de-Provence commands an excellent view of the valley, making it long a strategic position for settlement.
From the upper parking lot, a climb higher on the carved walls above the old caves opens a great vista and a view all the way to the grasslands of Rhone Delta and the Camargue.
An Early June morning brings few visitors to Les-Beax-de-Provence. Ideal months for a visit are may and June September October
July and August will be crowded at Les Beaux, perhaps the most visited village in the Alpilles Hills. The ruin of the castle and the currently active village of 500, occupy a high rocky ledge and commands an excellent view of the valley,and the dozens of hiking trails through the olive groves.
Much of western Europe takes to the road in August, a busy time of hiking, biking, and sightseeing for Les Baux.
Les Baux-de-Provence receives over a million tourist each year but is still a must see when in Provence. Reenactments and the demonstration of ancient weapons of the Middle Ages including a catapult fired during April to December demonstrations, make Les Baux-de-Provence unique in the area.
