Among the Wildflowers of Gordes

Soaking up the sun

I wish I could spend most every day in the south of France, but since I can’t, I’ll have to just enjoy it when I can. The town of Gordes, nestled quite nicely in the Provence region of southeast France, is a stunning hilltop of stone buildings and rocky outcrops. Once the site of a Roman temple, Gordes is crowned with a 10th century castle that overlooks the Luberon. It’s also where parts of A Good Year was filmed – one of my favorite movies and a source of inspiration for our wedding.

The village of Gordes is breathtaking

After our marriage we took a short TGV trip to Gordes to relax and get some sun. But the pool left me eager to wander, rather than relax, so one morning we decided to get lost. Follow me down a few of the calades, the narrow cobblestone alleys that wind around the village.

Imagine getting to sip your coffee at that table every morning

Just off the main drag you have your pick of little streets. Lets go through this beautiful, winding archway first…

Stone and pastels – it never gets old

The doors you see behind me along this road looked like they were either boarded up or filled with debris. The cobblestone was old and so worn that it was polished to a shine from use.

The architecture of Gordes reveals years of additions. Here, an old arch is concealed by less ancient stones.

I never tire of beautiful big doors and sunny courtyards. Climbing up a few stairs to the right…

…to find a hidden wall of greenery and flowers.

The flowers smelled so sweet and put us in a wonderful mood. Now down we go again along the road!

Past a fig tree and trying not to lose my hat from the wind!

Looking back up the calades where we came. Beautiful, isn’t it?

Down another set of stairs until we get to the end…
