the Abbey at Senanque


Wei Ling’s QUESTION … Hi, I was wondering in your entry re Provence you wrote, “As if the mountains weren’t spectacular enough, we came across one of Pat’s major objectives, a glorious field of lavender nestled in a cleft between the hills adjacent to an ancient monastery.” Can you tell me where exactly that lavender field is and what is the name of the ancient monastery? Thanks!

ANSWER … Thanks so much for your interest. We were travelling along the stunning mountain road (D177) from Gordes to Carpentras. The lavender field was at the Abbey of Senanque.
