Provence




This is a bit late, but wanted to write about this lovely area. I had certain images of what Provence might be like after reading the likes of Year in Provence, but was surprised at how different it was - at least to me. First, Provence is the name of the area of France and there are tiny towns dotted all through along with the biggest city, Aix-en-Provence. We stayed in a very rural gite on the outskirts of Gordes. The family had huge acres of vineyards and we used the old vines to heat the wood stove in the evenings. Meandering through the small towns of Bonaire, Gordes, Gault, Rousillion, you see why people come to this area to relax, sip pastis, and just take in the view.
