If you come back to our place for the end of your road trip, you can stop in Manosque. The writer Jean Giono lived in this charming town in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. Its historic heart is full of Provencal treasures such as the narrow streets, the church and the squares. The visit is even better on Saturday market day. A destination of culture and heritage.
