Lavandin field in Jouques

A house in Provence

We were raring to go but, I have to admit, I was just a little bit apprehensive, but also excited at the ‘grande aventure’ that lay ahead. While the cliché ‘you only live once’ was resounding in our heads, we new that our stay in France would be much more than just a holiday and the path ahead was so unknown!

The hidden gem

So we were, finally, heading to THAT village in Provence! The one that my husband had been talking about for four years and which we might move to if I also liked it. Time to check it out and see if our lives would change forever!

Following the dream

To one day live in another country, where the sun shines, a lot, the sky seems to be eternally blue, the food is good and the wine even better!
Perhaps not everyone’s dream includes Provence as the destination, but for us it was always France, specifically Provence – that group of departments in the country’s south that collectively make up one of the most visited and travelled places in the world.
