Les Tres Source, Bonnieux, France

Our next stay was one of my favorites.  One of the more simple places compared to the castles and chateaus that we experienced.  It was an old stone mas (farmhouse) and it's beauty was so "Provence."  The light, the stonework, the landscape with medieval towns and castles perched on the surrounding hilltops. 
It sat, surrounded by grape vines, rows of lavender and cherry trees in full fruit, just below the medieval town of Bonnieux.   It had been used, in the 1800s as a factory for silk worm production.
These photos are of a wall in the courtyard.....the stone stairs leading to our room....and finally my new french shoes!!   I LOVE these shoes!!
