La Provence - day two

by - 14:54

La Provence, France

The second day right after breakfast, we drove to a little town called Joucas. Only 6km from Gordes, this beautiful village charmed us immensely. We wandered the hidden alleys and cobblestone streets, admiring the stunning view of vineyards and Louberon mountains. Rousillon offered us another spectacular view of the National Park du Luberon. We spent most of the day in this Provence town, famous for its magnificent red cliffs and ochre quarries 'le sentier des ocres.' I would recommend to arrive quite early in the morning as the parking can be a problem. The whole city of Rousillon is coloured from yellow to red and orange. We enjoyed walking around the local market, soaking up the atmosphere while sipping our coffee and simply loving the provincial spirit everywhere. Goult had a very relaxing atmosphere and like every other village, was full of history, little alleys and hidden treasures. I personally loved this little village and even though it's not between the very famous ones, I'm glad we didn't skip it. Our last stop was the village of Lacoste, where the famous Marquis de Sade once lived. We walked to the very top of Lacoste and soaked in the view. The Marquis de Sade's castle is situated here (now owned by the fashion designer Pierre Cardin). We didn't go in, but the view from the top was definitely worth the climb. Very hungry at this point, we returned to Gordes and enjoyed the evening atmosphere and delicious food at Casa Rosario, lovely tip from one of my Instagram followers, Rachel. xx
