Postcards from Provence

One of the many cute cafes in Avignon, France. A trip to Provence is utterly picturesque | Postcards of Provence

Provence is the stuff that dreams are made of. Lavender, sunflowers, and vineyards fill the countryside. Ancient villages cling to the sides of hills, inviting visitors to explore medieval buildings. Markets overflow with produce and spices so lovely and fresh that your mouth waters just looking at them. Everywhere, people seem to be enjoying the good life in the south of France. We fell in love with all the sights, flavors, and history of this divine place, and these photos will show you why.

      Hello, this site and its photos bring back such good memories. My husband and I travelled through from Paris to Marseille in 2015 and had such a great time. I even recognise the photo where the painting is on the garage door, that is from Rousillion, quite thrilling to recognise something that you yourself have a photo of. Laura, I am not sure where you are from, would love to know, but we are from australia and it is a big effort and expense to go OS. Not to mention I have a terrible fear of flying, but we want to see these paces so much it hasnt stopped us yet.
      Looking forward to reading more from you, happy travels. Naomi

    Your travel blog is so informative! I feel like you’ve actually taken me to Europe. May I ask where the lady photo in this page was taken?

    Thank you!
