Lavender with it's spikes of mauve or bright red poppy flowers which carpet fields sway in the gentle breeze and stretch on towards the foothills of mountains. An irresistible temptation for travelers who stop for a photography session.
Flowers are not the only attraction in this beautiful countryside, the scenery of the Alpes de Haute region of the Provence is stunning - remote and rugged. From steep sided gorges, rivers, mountains, and lakes.
Nearby is the medieval town of Moustiers-Ste-Marie (Moustiers-Sainte-Marie) which is a vibrant tourist destination and is world famous for producing the beautiful Faience pottery.
