Clear blue skies, endless landscapes that capture medieval villages perched on rolling hilltops surrounded by fragrant fields of flowers and vineyards before dipping down to the glamorous coastline.
Have you ever read the classic book ‘A Year in Provence’ by Peter Mayle? I can tell you now, a year is not enough to experience everything in this region of France! (Above Image: AwesomePlacesOnEarth)
While I encourage you to take your time and slowly traverse the Provincial countryside you wont always have that luxury. No matter how long you go for my advice is to try and split your time between the city culture, the countryside and the coast. (Above Image: Michalo)
Avignon and Marseille probably ring a bell but try to visit the less tourist laden areas. We stayed near Aix en Provence in a great B&B Villa and our hosts gave us some great advice of where to go exploring. This sort of local advice is irreplaceable and another reason why I love staying in smaller establishments. (Above Image: Soldon)
I’m not going to go too much into it because really, we all know what it’s like and it is really just nice to dream of going back, or going there if you are yet to explore this area of the world. Oh and there are a million different flavours of macarons to try and while I did my very best to get to as many as possible, there are still more for me to taste. Good as excuse as any.
Are you suffering from Wanderlust Provence?
Have you ever seen so many Macaron flavours in one place?
