Nearby Roussillon is the perched village of Gordes. There is such a stunning view of it as you approach:
There must be nothing but rocks under the soil in this region. Most of the homes and walls are made of the stacked stones found in the area. I love how they make their walls:
All around Provence are little buildings made of stone called Bories. You usually see them in fields, and they were probably used by shepherds. At the base of the hill where Gordes is found, is a whole village of these buildings called Borie Village. It is interesting to see how people lived in them. The place was inhabited until the end of the 1800’s when electricity became available.
