France Day 7: The Luberon Valley

Day 7 was a bit insane. I literally cannot write all of the city names in the title because we went to SEVEN cities. In one day. Well, to be fair, they should probably be called villages, not cities. The Luberon Valley. It was amazing.

On to Fontaine de Vaucluse (the water was so low, there wasn't much to see) and then l'Isle sur la Sorgue (a wonderful city with a large marche (market) and plenty of shopping).

Lacoste is almost solely inhabited by a SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) campus - teachers, classes, and students.

Driving through Gordes to the Abbaye de Senanque, famous for its lavender (which would have been blooming about a month after we visited.)

Back to the Gordes village center for dinner, complete with local olives and olive oils, incredible rose vines, and sunsets over beautiful ancient buildings.
