Le Sénanque Abbey (10/05)

We also stopped at the iconic Sénanque Abbey that is located just outside of Gordes. A familiar image seen in many a calender, travel book, and postcard, it is famous for their stunning lavender crops and prosperous honey bees.
We unfortunately missed the height of lavender season, but were able to see the plants that would produce the tranquilly fragrant flowers next year. There was still a hint of lavender in the air, so it wasn't all bad.
