"In the heart of the Provence!" Gordes by rich77

Gordes Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 102 photos


In the heart of the Provence there is a small village defended called Gordes. I didn't know it, I was travelling by car to catch the Abbaye de Senanque, when I saw this beautiful panorama.

...and the Abbaye de Senanque

And this was my objective: this fantastic church is in the middle of fields of lavanda and oaks...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Not a conventional touristic aim, very beautiful and smelled scenery in spring
  • Cons:You can reach it only by car...
  • In a nutshell:The Lavanda's secret!

    I am looking for a charming town in Provence that is reachable only by car. This looks lovely.
