If any place can transport you to another time, it's the Provence region of southeastern France. It's romantic, wonderful, sensual, and my absolute favorite place to spend a little time:) Today you'll see this place in winter and summer as you did with the Paris shots. It's truly an incredible visit and you won't want to miss this stop on your adventures to France.
The Rocking Horse
Most countries sell stupid touristy stuff, but I found it quite the opposite in France where you'll find lovely fabrics, perfumes, wines and other licours. The atmosphere around the place is timeless and you'll truly enjoy the walks during the day.
The above pic is taken outside the castle walls of Avignon, France. It's actually outside the city. This is a great place to stay for all your day trip fun! The places are unique and OLD! The restaurants are picturesque. The food divine. And the people are so friendly here!
This is a poor pic from our hotel in downtown Avignon and as you can see it's a place that's all about clowns. And quite frankly, clowns scare me!! But it had a lot of interesting architecture and design. Definitely a unique place to stay!
I couldn't decide if I liked this place during winter or summer, but I have to say that driving through fields of lavender is pretty incredible. The smells were some of my favorite. Blues and yellows are popular provinicial colors that make great additions to any Southwestern homes and garden design.
This is a place I'd go back again and again and again.......it's that amazing.
