Visit of Moustiers Ste Marie, perched village in the entrance of the Gorges du Verdon
Our very favorite!
After having crossed the magnificent lavender fields of the Valensole plateau (blooming from the middle of June until the beginning of July), walk across the charming small streets and go up to the perched sanctuary above the village.
This visit can be finished by a relaxed bathing in the Ste Croix lake.
