BEYOND NW: Enjoying the beautiful colours of Provence…

After a couple of lovely days in Lyon, we headed down the Autoroute du Soleil to Provence for a friends’ wedding. We were staying near Avignon, in a beautiful farmhouse, decorated very much in the Provencal tradition, and the view from our bedroom was amazing.

When we arrived, we went for a swim in the divine pool, and then settled down under the vines and enjoyed our lunch purchases from Les Halles and a delicious bottle of the ONLY thing to drink in Provence. Rose, of course:

The little details in the place we were staying really added to it, and we loved seeing the colours of Provence all around. It was so calm and peaceful, and we totally and completely relaxed. It was a wonderful break.

We stayed here, and would highly recommend it. Though you will need to speak enough French to communicate with the owners, be warned!
