The Most Stunning Clifftop Towns In The World
1. Avalon, USA
Avalon is a city situated on Santa Catalina Island, in the California Channel Islands. It is southeast of Channel island. Here, homes cling to a rather steep hillside that wraps ‘round the harbor. No normal motor vehicles are permitted on the steep street here, so many residents ride in mini-golf carts. Some of the highlights here include hiking trails, sunny beaches, and oceanside bars.
2. Gordes, France
This commune is reportedly built into the rock face in the Monts de Vaucluse range. It is perhaps one of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region’s prettiest hilltop towns. It comes complete with pastel-colored, terracotta-roofed residences, and narrow streets that snake their way up to a majestic medieval castle. The views of the Luberon massif and rolling fields below are quite memorable. Don’t miss the weekly market.
