A Journey to Provence!

This Acupuncturist’s Dream Vacation – Part 1

The Provencal villages of St-Saturinin les Apt and Roussillion were just two of the many villages we explored on our trip to France this past June.  It was a little too early for the lavender blooms just north of Gordes at L’Abbé de Senaque, but we took some lovely photos there and ended up finding lavender flourishing near Murs, not far from Apt, where we stayed for a week.

It was market day on Tuesday, when we drove 15 minutes north of  our apartment in Apt to check out a tiny place called St-Saturinin les Apt.  The church steeple is a beautiful work of stonemasonry unlike any I had seen before.

  We hiked up to the old church ruins above the town.
