Cabriès

View

Tansy, Constance and Aurelia are staying in Cabriès, a tiny 11th century hilltop town in Provence, between Aix and Marseilles. It used to belong to the Abbaye de Sainte-Victor, the old church that we visited in Marseille.

Goat Path

The streets are mostly too narrow for cars, and some are only wide enough for a donkey, or as in this case a goat!

Also, many of the streets have stairs…

City Wall

The old city walls are just beyond the garden of the house of our relatives!

  1. What a superb place! Bet Cabriès residents are serene …no traffic jams except for maybe a few goats!!!! Happy trails dear friends! My Hittys are having a wonderful get together with some friends and they send their love to the three lucky companions! Have a fun family time!

    • Probably it is like all small towns, a bit of this and a bit of that…but no goats so far! We are having a wonderful family time, lovely and Peaceful and like a real holiday. Have a fun visit with your friends, and bonjour to all of you too!

  2. Yikes! Sometimes the girls scare me with their courage…if a strong wind came along…however all Hittys have a special connection with the elements so I suppose they know when it’s safe to climb on overlooks and just enjoy the scenery.

    • The girls are quite adventurous, but I don’t worry too much, they are sturdy on their pegs, and always within snatching reach should a dog wander past or a gust of wind blow by!

  3. what an experience….love the photos. So happy the girls are having such a wonderful time.. Thank you for sharing the experience with us stay at homes.
