Little by little..I will share some of Provence.. I had the opportunity of a trip of my lifetime by visiting Provence ..Tuscany ..Umbria..and Rome this year.

Our arrival was in Marseilles.. and we drove right away to Cassis..a beautiful harbor town... We spent the afternoon visiting this charming town.. and then headed straight away to our first port of call..

Gordes.How I loved Gordes..I highly recommend it. We stayed at a darling darling place...recommended by a friend's son. I will always be grateful for the recommendation... From the time I arrived..until I left.. I was enraptured. How can you not be when you start the morning off with a breakfast under the wisteriad pergola.. listening to classical music.. enjoying fresh home made jam and croissants.. freshly squeezed orange juice..and aromatic coffee beautifully presented.

Our days were spent touring local markets.. co-ops.. beautiful medieval towns. All the while driving amidst vineyards..charming narrow roads and round abouts:) I took over 3000 photos.

The breads and cheese we ate..the wine we tasted..the sights we saw. I hope I never ever forget them.
