Around the World in 80 Words – Moustiers Ste. Marie

I spotted this idea on Sam Cleasby’s Pretty Little Peculiar blog, Sam was originally inspired by another blogger  and after reading Sam’s and a few other posts, I felt inspired to join in!

So here we go, and actually it’s not as easy as it seems, my first entry about one of my favourite places in the world, but somewhere not many people will have visited.

Moustiers Sainte Marie is nestled among lavender fields and amazing scenery in the Gorges Du Verdon in the South of France. It’s built into the side of a rock face with a river running down it that turns into the most dramatic waterfall right in the centre of the village. There’s a star strung between two of the peaks of rock above the village, not sure why… It’s a fair climb to the church but worth it for the views!
