Eagle’s Nest (Le Bo de Provence)

On a barren weathered rock ridge nine hundred meters long and two hundred and eighty meters high – the ruins of the castle. On the mountain, rising to the foot of the rock massif – a living city, ivy greens, tiled roofs, solar heat comes even from the limestone walls of the houses, the streets smell like lavender – and growing in the surrounding fields, and sold in every shop.

Already at the end of the X century, the owners of the castle of Le Bo in Provence – Les Baux-de-Provence, arrogantly looking down on arable land and pastures, controlled a fairly vast surrounding land. By the middle of the next century, they were already among the strongest feudal families in the south of France. Senor Le Bo owned 79 towns and villages.

Mount Mont Ventoux is one of the most beautiful landscapes of Provence. At its foot is one of the largest natural springs in the world (fifth largest) – Fontaine de Vaucluse (Arles – Roman arenas)

Provencal roads are very picturesque – especially noteworthy are the roads through the Luberon massif and the journey to Arles, Saint-Remy and St-Remy and Avignon. Continue reading
