How to tour Provence if you are a foodie
I can’t say that I was a culinary fanatic when I first moved to France, but I can say today that France has turned me into a foodie.
Produce, healthy pride, the way to savor, the way to mix and match, the art of eating and drinking – everything flows together making food much more than just a time to eat. It cultural, artistic, pleasurable, and indulgent. The word « indulgent » in France takes a new meaning (at least it has for me). It means you partake in a harmony of senses that please more than just your palate.

An Aphrodisiac in Provence
Truffles in Provence?
What attracts you most to Provence? The Mediterranean climate? Provencal cuisine and a rosé from the terroir? Stumbling upon Roman ruins and looking up at Medieval castles? What if I told you that Provence is also one of the treasured places in the world for an aphrodisiac?

From valley to hilltop in the Luberon
The Automne colors were just starting to turn when I had the privilege to take Larry and Kathy on a tour through the Luberon valleys and hilltops.
From their hotel near Gordes, we ventured to the first village just 10 minutes away. Oppede-le-Vieux.
