3 Boulevard Victor Hugo, 13210 Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France
While on a trip to the wonderful Provence region of France, one of the best days was the day we visited Saint-Remy. It is beautiful in itself, but one of the true gems of the area is Joel Durand's chocolate shop. We had the honor of a private...

This is such a quaint little village, I loved exploring it yesterday. Saint Paul de Vence up on the hill.
Save Place
Chapitre, 13001 Marseille, France
While living in Paris as an undergrad, I bought a train ticket to Marseille on a whim. It was a weekend trip, and I didn’t take anyone with me, nor meet anyone there -- no plans at all. The countryside passed in sweet silence on the 3-hour TGV...
Save Place
Vallon de l’Arcoule (D78F), 13520 Les Baux-de-Provence, France
'Benvengudo' means welcome in old, Provencal dialect and it's a fitting name for a hotel that will feel like home. Hotel Benvendgudo is a small, casual, boutique hotel just a few kilometers below the fortified town of Les Baux, in the Alpilles...
Save Place
Aix-en-Provence, France
It would be hard to do better in Provence than in a city that is named after the region, right? Totally right. Aix-en-Provence is the region's most delightful, easily accessible and interesting mid-sized city, and its markets are not to be missed....
Save Place
84100 Orange, France
Orange is a charming little town, located in the south of France. Although it may not be as sophisticated as some of the more tourist-driven towns and villages in Provence, it has one of the most well-maintained Roman theaters in Europe. It also...
Save Place
84800 L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, France
I have selectively framed food photos from my travels for my kitchen and this photo might be a new personal favorite! Not to mention that the olives were some of the best I've had the pleasure of eating! If you are looking for a Sunday outing...

13210 Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France
Vincent van Gogh was a self-admitted patient at the Saint-Paul asylum in Saint-Rémy from May 1889 until May 1890. During much of his time there he was confined to the grounds of the asylum, and his works are great studies of the landscape and...
Save Place
Nice, France
Even on a Monday, the markets were amazing! If only I had an empty suitcase and a full bank account to visit them with. Row after row of cute, brightly coloured striped awnings shade stall after stall of treasures—particularly good for costume...
Save Place
Arles, France
Looking down the rooftops of Arles from the Arles Amphitheatre.
Save Place
Place Massena, Nice, France
The popular shopping center in Nice is at the Place Massena. You will know you arrived there when you stepped on the checkered tiles. From there, you can explore the near by streets for more stores as well. The better part is that the tram goes...
Save Place
Arles, France
Wandering through the narrow streets of Arles, France, was like stepping back in time. Everything felt so magical and surreal.
Save Place

13550 Noves, France
Noves is a small commune just south of Avignon. It resides in the Bouches-du-Rhone department of France and, as we found out, provides very easy access to the entire region of Provence. Being first-timers to Provence we did not know what to expect...
Save Place
84220 Roussillon, France
Beyond the French Riviera are small towns and villages that you can easily explore if you have access to a car. One May, seven of us rented a car (yes we were cramped in a tiny French model) and we left our hostel in Avignon for a day trip around...

The garden of Èze (also known as the exotic garden) is a jewel. If the grounds and the view over the Mediterranean don't take your breath away, check for a pulse! Going early is recommended, if only to have the garden to yourself and as few other...
Save Place
27 Rue des Cordeliers, 13100 Aix-en-Provence, France
Unfortunately, I haven't been to enough European Christmas markets to know whether this one is truly extraordinary, but I really love the marché de Noël in Aix-en-Provence in the south of France. The little stalls are set up along the Cours...
Save Place
Montagne Sainte-Victoire, 13126 Vauvenargues, France
From any corner of Aix-en-Provence, they say, you can see the Mont St. Victoire. I don't know if that's entirely true, but the white limestone mountain does seem to be everywhere when I live in Aix for a few months, peeking over olive groves and...
Save Place
Pont d'Avignon, Boulevard de la Ligne, 84000 Avignon, France
Both our kids learnt this song in their Montessori class - well - one of their teacher's was French. A very cute song and ever since we became familiar with it we were itching to visit the bridge in Avignon. During our trip to Provence it was the...
Save Place
248 de, Route Capon, 83990 Saint-Tropez, France
Even with the summer crush on the French Riviera in full swing, there are quiet escapes to be found. In particular, I like to take walks along the Sentier du Littoral, the coastal footpath that stretches the length of the French Mediterranean...
