Le Village des Bories

An interesting drive took us to "Le Village des Bories."





These dry stones huts are well worth the drive to visit near the village of Gordes.  Instead of going into a lot of detail about them, I refer you to the following website to give you more information.  They are uniquely built by the way the stones are laid...using no mortar.  They date back to the 14th or 15th century.

  5. It is amazing that something built this way has withstood invasions and the wear and tear of time. This must have been a fascinating day. I hope you are both having a great time. Blessings...Mary

  7. Thank you for the tour, Susan. Beautiful places and I am always amazed at what was accomplished way back then and with so few tools, which speaks to mans abilities and creativity if left alone.

  8. I knew you were in Gordes the minute I read Les Bories. They are so interesting and it's amazing how far back in time they go. Did you visit the lovely hotel there? We wanted to have dinner in their dining room, but were too early.
