On the evening of Thursday, July 31, 2015, we stayed at a bed and breakfast in Gordes called Domaine de l’Enclos Châteaux & Hôtels Collection. Gordes is a commune in the Vaucluse département in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France. The residents are known as Gordiens.
Abbaye de Sénanque
Notre-Dame de Senanque is a beautiful (and still active) Cistercian abbey near the village of Gordes in the department of the Vaucluse in Provence. The Senanque Abbey was founded in 1148 under the patronage of Alfant, bishop of Cavaillon, and Raymond Berenger II, Count of Provence, by Cistercian monks who came from Mazan Abbey in the Ardeche.
