Eke Out at the Village de Bories

Not far from Gordes, Provence.
Amazing drystone village- creating a sculptural landscape.
The wall-roof transition is impressive- internal framing was minimal or absent!
Inside, these buildings tended to be pretty gloomy I thought. Maybe that's because of desertion?
Maybe they were cozy once upon a time? The folks were poor, and they really had to eke out a living here from the stoney stoney land.
