The Bories Village
The village of Les Bories not far from Gordes (4 kilometres away) is a kind of natural museum, as if its name suggests, to a multitude of Bories.
Bories, famous in the region, are former shepherds’ huts, dwellings or even storage places. They have been renovated and reproduced similarly.
The Abbey of Sénanque
To complete your discovery we recommend you to visit the Abbey of Sénanque.
So, we recommend to discover it during the flowering of Lavender. The fields surrounding it give it indeed an intense purple colour.
Between Gordes and L’Abbaye, take a steep road that offers many landscapes.
Visits are restricted to preserve the site but you can still admire its beauty.
You will find a very nice cloister as well as some small shops run by the monks.
In other words, this is a stop to have in the area.
