The village of Lacoste is built on a hill.
We climbed and climbed until we got to the top.
As I walked past these homes I tried to imagine what it would be like to live on a street like this.
At the top is the ruined castle where the Marquis de Sade once lived. The history of the Marquis is a sad one and is where the word "sadism" came from.
Today Pierre Cardin is renovating the castle.
Someday the castle will again be beautiful, but for now it just looks like a castle falling down.

The view from the castle shows the neighboring village of Bonnieux.
Lacoste is a quiet village except for art students showing their art.
While we were there it was lunch time and everyone had gone home for lunch.
The views are spectacular from the mountain top.

Wow! The narrow stone streets remind me of a place in Toledo, Spain. I've never been to France. Would love to go!
