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.

Alsace Fashion

Fashion for Alsace Holidays in Alsace is in fashion with Russian tourists. Especially among those who love France and have more than once rested in this country. Having visited Paris, the castles of the Loire and the Cote d’Azur, the tourist craves for new, fresh experiences. Alsace is also good because it is located near other famous and popular cities in Europe. So the most incredible combined tours are possible.

Alsace owes much of its popularity with Russians to Transaero Airlines, which last year began regular flights to the provincial capital, Strasbourg. The direct flight Moscow-Strasbourg made this region easily accessible for our tourists. In addition, as it turned out, Alsace has a number of undeniable advantages over the already promoted areas of France.

Why is it worth going to Alsace
