Perched atop a high promontory, Banon keeps the look of a provençal hilltop village. The cobbled streets are lined with old houses, some dating to the 16th century. Protected behind its walls, the village has gradually spread to the valley; and during summer, at the foot of Banon spread lavender fields.
Banon is worth a visit for its famous cheese, and a walk in the old town to the top of the hill will reward you with a beautiful view of the mountain of Lure.

A very typical view of Provence. The lavender fields make a lovely colourful foreground to the picturesque village which surely bathes in a wonderful scent. I hope you tasted their famous cheese ! A beautiful scenery.

I love the fresh look of this place, an intriguing village with so much character and charm perched high on top surrounded by such picturesque landscape. It's well detailed shot, excellent clarity in brilliant weather and the blooming lavender stunningly grab attention as strong anchor. Lovely vibrant landscape so well planned and captured, Congrats
