My Photos of Provence
As you can imagine, my time in Provence was incredibly productive.
I had the opportunity to explore approximately fifty towns and locations, all within a 50-kilometre radius of our home base in Bonnieux.
I meandered through the charming, narrow lanes of the most exquisite hilltop villages, hiked through lush forests adorned with oak, pine, and cedar trees, strolled across fragrant lavender fields and bountiful orchards of cherry and olive trees, ventured to majestic off-the-beaten-path landmarks, engaged with extraordinary individuals over delightful candied fruits or honey, and cruised along France's picturesque roads, shaded by magnificent plane trees.
These photos of Provence now stand as a condensed visual summary of our incredible adventures.
