Scenes of Provence: Gordes

17.07.13

Good morning! Still reminiscing of our all-too-short recent trip to Provence, France, I thought I’d bring you another installment today. This time, join me on a quick trip to one of the largest hilltop villages in the region, Gordes. Wander the charming stone paved alleyways and soak up the stunning views of the city, which seems to cascade down the Monts de Vaucluse it’s perched upon.

The stone structure dates back to the 10th century and was remodeled during the Renaissance in 1525. These sweeping views over the Luberon Valley left me utterly charmed and breathless, and eager to return. Sigh…

Have a wonderful day,

    The roads of Provence will get even busier with tourists if you continue teasing them with all these beautiful villages!
