Goult enjoys an almost perfect location perched on a hill within the Luberon region, close enough to neighboring villages and towns for variety, but far away enough to fully enjoy its peacefulness
Wat maakt deze plaats zo speciaal
A stroll through the picturesque streets is the first thing you should do upon arrival in Goult, where you can discover the ruins of the old ramparts, the cultivated terraces, visit the Roman church and sit with a drink in the shade of the many ancient olive trees and fruit trees lining the village. Walking, hiking and cycling are popular activities in Goult, and the beautiful surrounding countryside is an ideal location in which to do it. It is just a 3km to both the neighbouring villages of Beaumettes and Saint Pantaleon. Beaumettes main attraction is the remains of its 15th century chateau, whilst Saint Pantaleon is home to a 12th century Roman chapel. Heading out further into the Luberon mountain range, there are many walking and cycling tracks for public use, allowing you to lose yourself in the Provençal region. Goult is an ideal base from which to visit several neighbouring villages within the 50km Luberon mountain range, known as the ‘Golden Triangle’. Beaumettes, Saint Pantaleon, Gordes, Cabrieres d’Avignon and Menerbes all within 10km of Goult, and each offers something different to explore. Further afield, the medium-sized town of Avignon is just 40km away, and is known as a city of history, architecture and theatre.
