A Detailed Description of the Virtual Walk on this Video
Your 60 minute Provence Villages Virtual Walk begins overlooking a valley outside the hilltop village of Viens.
You turn and approach the village proper.
Entering Viens through a courtyard...
you find yourself walking in this beautiful narrow French street.
The street winds its way between timeless stone houses....
that have been homes to countless families through the centuries.
You turn and walk through a stone archway...
and, after walking through a second stone archway...
you pause to take in another stunning view of the landscape that is Provence.
But Viens has even more memorable scenes to offer...
like this one, just waiting to be captured on canvas.
Next, you enter the village of Lourmarin, designated "L'un Des Plus Beaux Villages de France" by the French.
And you can see why the village was so honored.
Lourmarin is a typical Provence village, with its...
families enjoying the warm September afternoon...
and friendly, welcoming faces.
Lourmarin has wide, tree lined streets...
and narrow streets with shops and cafes just waiting to be explored.
Loumarin typifies the relaxed, romantic, Mediterranean style of life with hand-in-hand strolls or sitting leisurely at an
outdoor cafe with a glass of wine, lemonade, or favorite aperitif.
Your Provence Villages Walk next takes you to the hilltop village of Saignon. The church you see in the distance,
the 12th century Saint Mary of Saignon, has been a stopping point for religious pilgrims since the Middle Ages.
Once again beginning your walk from a hilltop outside the village proper, as you turn and begin your descent,
you pause to admire the magnificent view.
Then you proceed through an archway....
and over more winding, narrow walkways....
and through a small courtyard with a centuries old fountain...
to the outside of the 12th century village church where Marriage Banns are still posted in the green box to the left.
Then on to the village of Lacoste, a village where time appears to be standing still.
Lacoste is best known for its most notorious resident, the Marquis de Sade, who in the 18th century lived in this castle,
Château de Lacoste. Today, fashion designer Pierre Cardin has purchased the Château and built a new residence within its walls.
You descend from the Château walking around the perimeter...
and cross the bottom of the dry moat...
and once again, pause for a view of the valley and the incredible Provencal landscape.
Then you continue down through the nearly empty stone streets of Lacoste.
Today the Savannah College of Art and Design has classes here for art students and professors from all corners of the globe...
studying fine arts, writing, architecture, design, fashion, film, photography, sculpture, and theater.
During World War II, the French Resistance took their foothold in the steep Luberon Mountains around Lacoste...
and trenches and barbed wire still can be found in the forested area in the valley.
Next you visit Ansouis, also designated "L'un Des Plus Beaux Villages de France" by the French.
Ansouis, often described as a 'mini version' of nearby Gordes, is a quaint medieval village dating to the 10th century.
Ansouis is one of the less well known of the Provence villages, but the day we filmed, it had a few tourists...
and a dog or two...
while other sections of Ansouis were compeletely empty.
The last village you will visit on the one hour video is Menerbes, also
designated "L'un Des Plus Beaux Villages de France."
Ménerbes became known in the English-speaking world through the books of British author Peter Mayle...
who related his experiences as a British expatriate who settled in this village.
You will walk through the village and up to its summit ...
to take in a spectacular view of the hilltop village and surrounding countryside...
before continuing on through Menerbes.
Your 60 minute walk continues through the village and ends with this view of the Provence countryside.
