At the end of a valley
On my way out of Gordes I happened upon the Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque (Sénanque Abbey). You can tour the lavender fields and the area in the abbey where they product lavender products. In the shop I bought two bars of lavender soap.The abbey lies in a valley close to Gordes and is worth the visit.
You can actually stay on the abbey grounds in a Hôtellerie:

Address: F-84220 Gordes
Directions: L'Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque is at the end of a little valley. I can still remember driving down the mountain on one side, rounding a 180 degree curve and there was the entrance to the abbey.

Just beside Gordes is the Village de Bories. The Village de Bories an ancient hamlet of all dry-stone buildings: an incredible collection of houses, walls, barns and a variety of other enclosures. No one knows who built these structures out of local stones.
In 1999 it was libre, or free admission however, now you have to pay 5 euros to get in, hour of operation: 09:00-17:30.
