old villages

In the south of France most towns have a new and old town. The new is situated at the base of a mountain and often has plain looking houses in it. The old town is situated up a mountain for ancient security measures and built with style and elegance, using traditional building methods from 16-18th century. Today we went for a hike to visit Opede le Vieux (Opede the Old). We brought a flask of hot chocolate and went exploring in abandoned castles, old churches, a graveyard and old cobble stone roads.
