Tips and hints
Food and Drink
Gordes has numerous independent shops including a couple bakeries and a supermarket where you can stock up for the day. All are on or near to the square in front of the castle. There are no facilities en-route during this short walk, other than at the Abbaye de Senanque, should you choose to visit there.
Points of Interest
Senanque is a beautiful and still-working 12th century abbey, tucked into an isolated valley north of Gordes. Famous for its lavender fields, and associated craft industry, it welcomes visitors all year round (reduced hours in the winter months). There is a dress code (it’s a working monastery!) and an entrance fee, but it’s a popular attraction and despite being extremely busy during the summer months, offers an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity.
