Treasures of Provence

Welcome to Treasures of Provence

I think you’ll agree, nearly every guide book tells you that Provence is a region of great diversity and a great place for a holiday.

They’ll talk about the light, spectacular landscapes, magnificent perched villages and immense fields of lavender and vineyards as far as the eye can see.

They’ll write that it is a land of artists, film stars, writers and culture. They’ll mention in passing its many festivals and events, its delicious food and wine. They’ll go to town about its many hotels and B&Bs, bistros and restaurants.

But Provence is so much more than that although I still have that burning question ‘Where is Provence?’ as I write in one of my blogs. Provence fascinates me in so many ways. I love the Provençal charm of its shabby-chic décor, the old stone houses and wooden shutters.

I love its food, antiques and craft markets. I love its myriad of festivals and diverse culture. I love the elegant water fountains, the large town squares and immense plane trees. I very much love its quality of life, rich abundance of food and generous supplies of wine. I love the warmth of its sunshine, the azure blue of its immense skies and the landscapes it smiles over.

And finally, and possibly the most important thing, I love the way the people of Provence are proud of their region.
