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.

PROVENCE

The province that inspired Van Gogh and Cezanne, gave birth to a galaxy of famous artists, attracting more and more foreign tourists and the French themselves – this is Provence.

The huge cliffs that open to your eyes in Les Baux, cypress trees and cedars under the scorching azure sky of Arles – this makes Provence a unique place to relax.

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
