Today was the last day of our trip and we had to return our guests to Avignon by late afternoon.

We decided to spend the morning at the old monastery at the Chartreuse de Valbonne, where we wandered around the buildings and gardens and enjoyed some strange musical sculptures and thought about how the building had been used in the past, both as a monastery and then as a hospital for leprosy sufferers.
