Deep in the region of Provence, the small village of Gordes rises high above the Luberon Valley. It has a rich history dating back centuries. One of its crowning achievements was receiving the Croix de Guerre for being an active resistance village during World War II.
If you ever visit Provence, specifically Gordes, I would highly recommend staying at La Ferme de la Huppe, minutes away from the village.The setting is idyllic. The seventeenth century villa has but twelve rooms, promising peace and quiet while you enjoy the natural beauty of the Luberon all around you.
If you do visit, be sure and tell Carol hello from me. She is a wonderful woman, an amazing hostess, and someone who I now consider a friend. She was delighted that my husband, Michael, spent time creating oil paintings on the property. (My hubby enjoyed a dip in the private pool after spending hours in the hot sun painting.)
