Sénanque Abbey

This the Sénaque Abbey in southern France. To get there we had to travel over a narrow mountain road, which the tourist buses somehow manage to transverse. Considering that it wasn't an easy drive for a car, that is no small feat.
The view of the countryside is breathtaking, and there are a bunch of scenic places to stop along the way. The view during July and August is incredible, packed full of lavenders, honey bees, and tourists. May and June are supposed to be nice as well with poppy fields all over (although not at the monastery).

Sénaque Abbey. Nature, flowers, an ancient building.
