Later on, we visit “La Louve” garden located in Bonnieux, ( 29 km form Pertuis), considered among the most interesting and well-designed private gardens of the area. This is a work of Mme De Vesian (she was Hermes’ designer , and later become a wonderful landscape designer), who bought the estate in 1986 and transformed it into a complicated work, a symbiosis between stone and Mediterranean wood, a concept that changed the idea of the traditional garden in Provence.
The garden offers numerous spaces in a succession of terraces, where in a particular space a harmonious connection has been created with the pool of the estate. In addition to the age-old plants, we also enjoy the beautyof wonderful shrubs.
Afterwards, tour of Lourmarin village, and its dominant castle. Nice walk in the village ,and return to Avignon. Dinner in hotel.
