At Le Diamant Noir, Aups , Provence October was a beautiful month.
It started warm and sunny with the pool at Le Diamant Noir still in use daily for the first half of the month
A trip round the Gorges Du Verdon at this time of year not only provides magnificent scenery but wonderful contrasts of colour as the various varites of deciduous trees start to take on autumnal hues.
At Le Palud sur Verdon be sure to take the route des cretes for a breathtaking drive deeper into the gorge
Fewer visitors at this time of year mean that the various viewpoints have parking space, enabling good photographic opportunities as well as an unhurried chance to take in the marvellous scenery and fresh air. Clear skies mean that you can see for miles.
