Introducing Ménerbes

Scaling steep streets to Ménerbes rewards you with uninterrupted views over Tuscan-like plains. The village's maze of cobbled alleyways lead to a 12th-century church, and a delicious locale to taste wine.

Ménerbes was made famous by British-expat author Peter Mayle, whose books A Year in Provence and Toujours Provence recount his tales of renovating a farmhouse outside the village in the late 1980s – Monsieur Mayle now lives in Lourmarin.
