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.

The owners of Le Bo, in their pride, built their genealogy to none other than the sorcerer Baltazar, awakened by a Christmas star, and wore a sixteen-rayed silver star on a black emblem as a sign of their genealogical claims. Who could compare with the owner of Le Bo? Who could dictate terms to him?

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.

Provence is diverse: endless vineyards of the Gigondas, silver hills of olive groves Nyons, lavender valleys stretching from Valreas to Vaison-la-Romaine. 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

Louvre Museum in Paris

The Louvre is beautiful and huge. Everyone who comes into it will receive a shock (aesthetic, of course). Lost in the Louvre is a tricky business. We will help you navigate in this oversaturated place with beauty. “Mona Lisa” by the unrivaled Leonardo da Vinci. A canvas masterpiece covered in legends and secrets. Nothing attracts tourists so much as the bewitching smile of Gioconda. The second star of the Louvre (only in a row, and not in significance) is Venus of Milos. The creation of the statue of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, dates from about 120 BC. The ideal proportions of the goddess fascinate and attract to itself. According to legend, the creator of the statue died in the arms of his model in a fit of passion. The work was not finished, so the masterpiece was left without hands. Here is a woman! (This refers to the Continue reading
