Luberon Hill country


Around each turn in the road it seemed we came to another beautiful, quaint
village in the Luberon Hills in Provence France.
I was intrigued by each one of them and took so many pictures it is difficult to choose which ones to share. I loved the colored shutters against the natural colored walls, the ivy growing up the walls, and the small tables and chairs sitting in the most unlikely places. And always there was a church tower, each more beautiful than the last one. I was especially in love with the blue touches of the shutters, tables, chairs, and sky. They indeed make my heart sing.

I think we must have visited almost all the villages of the Luberon hills, from Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Roussillon, Gordes, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Buoux, Saignon, Lourmarin, and others I don't remember right now.

Good morning, Marilyn. The Central picture is just stunning. and the lower left really speaks to me. Oh how I would love to live in a place like this.

Your travel photos are just so gorgeous, and what I love is your attention to the *details* in all these beautiful places. Nice work! (Only, I imagine it wasn't really work, ha!)

I can't imagine what it would like to travel around France...maybe in my second life.

Those are spectacular photos! I agree with Angela - love the attention to detail.

You have quite an impressive list of homemade holiday plans!

Your photos are beautiful and such a pleasure to see. I love the central photo of the village on the hills. It must have been quite an experience navigating those narrow inclined roads, but I guess you did most of your exploring on foot. :-)

Memories of these towns are flooding back - actually they never leave me for long, I've been hooked since last year!!
