Escape to the South of France....



"Traveling à la Provençal means sensual sauntering past scented lavender fields and chestnut forests; through fresh apple-green vineyards and silvery olive groves; around markets, Matisse-designed chapels and medieval hilltop villages impossibly perched on rocky crags. Be it with two wheels or four – on the back of a bicycle or with roof rolled back in a vintage Citroën 2CV – no region better begs lazy days out, interrupted only by copious alfresco lunches..........So prepare for heart-and-soul seduction." (from Introduction to Provence)


Wouldn't it be nice to just escape to a charming little Provence Chateau, with it's rustic country french design...surrounded by nature..and just enjoying every second of the day? I can even picture myself savoring some fabulous wine..with some fresh cheese and a piece of baguette...! I could just transport myself there with all this beautiful pictures form the book Provencal Escapes....and just to keep the dream alive I've checked some villas for rent in the area. Wouldn't renting a chateau here be a vacation of a lifetime?

Where would you like to travel next??
