Bonnieux and Lacoste




We had a day closer to home - went to Bonnieux to the markets - it was freezing and I had a guy determined to sell me a scarf but I resisted because as you would know the sun came out and all was well


Love all the roof tiles in Provence


Lots of herbs and spices


And vegetables


And fruit and more



Some of our goodies for eating whilst the rugby is on - we have eaten the raspberries but have sausage and cheese to go and lavender honey for our morning bread


Wonderful seen in Bonnieux


And another - sadly another shop has changed - one where I had already bought most of the books mind you.




Next we visited Lacoste - interesting hill top village between Menerbes and Bonnieux


Love the cobblestones and then we drove up to the chateau


Turns out it was owned by the Marquis de Sade and he came here when he wasn't imprisoned or on the run


Modern art around the door - it was being restored for 30 years by a professor and when he died Pierre Cardin bought it and runs a festival every year - we wandered all around the village



In the afternoon we walked to the top of the village - checked out the vins - and the books - nothing new sadly


And then visited a couple of vineyards where I couldn't resist




A packet of paper napkins for my little paper book




My wine soaked fabric drying



And ironed
At night we went to probably the best restaurant - Le Fournil in Bonnieux - we have been before and it was once again superb- nice guys
