Lourmarin stands among vineyards and olive groves at the foot of Aiguebrun River. Its fountain-lined streets weave around the Castellas, leading to a charming Romanesque church and a magnificent castle.
The seemingly endless stretches of lavender make Provence one of the prettiest (and best-smelling) places in France. One of the most scenic spots to enjoy the flower fields is Sénanque Abbey, a twelfth-century church near the village of Gordes.
Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, en Dordogne, France - This was too steep a climb from river's edge for Wirth Art to bicycle, but worth the humility of asking for a ride in the sag-wagon. Beautiful view from the castle and FUN ride back down to the river!
