Sourribes is a quiet little village, lying in the plain on the banks of the river Vançon, where old ladies take the air, sitting in the street with
their floral aprons... knitting a sweater for the cold season!
Surrounded by green hills and wheat fields, Sourribes has a lovely little church with a wall-belfry, a "mairie"-cum-school more than a century old (1902!), with its little square shaded by plane trees, old barns awaiting restoration and big unpretentious houses, with blue-lavender shutters, often with bucolic gardens.
Lulled by the song of the river, the cicadas... and the cockerel, with minimum road traffic since the road ends here, Sourribes is a haven of peace in Provence!
