Luberon villages and lavender fields
My second day in Provence, spent briefly visiting the beautiful little villages: Gordes, Roussillon (the home of ochre pigment painters love), the castle of Lacoste (once upon a time belonging to Marquis de Sade…now, Pierre Cardin’s, go figure) and Menerbes. Notwithstanding, of course, another stop by the lavender fields.
