Provence - a week for the senses
From Burgandy we made our way to sunny Provence. The temperature has been from 22-31 degrees so far. We are staying in a 200 year ol Gite in the middle of an apple orchard in a tiny place called Saint Andiol, just 10kms to beautiful Saint Remy de Provence and many other stunning places as you'll see in the posts to come. Our gite is so beautiful and we have a pool and all you can eat apples, grapes and figs. We have begun our week here with the St Remy markets on the day after we arrived. This was very busy and so many people. The stalls were full of amazing locally grown and made produce as well as clothing, linens and antiques- we were in heaven! A bit too crowdy for my liking but fab all the same. The food in provence is really gorgeous so fresh and vibrant- every mothful a delight for the senses.
