First, I’d like to thank all of the wonderful people who post trip reports and answer queries. The information was invaluable in planning this trip. Thanks also to any ChowHounds who may be reading this for their great tips on restaurants. I hope this report will be helpful to others.
The trip to Provence was wonderful and far exceeded our expectations. The people we met were friendly and very helpful, the villages were even prettier than they look in photos and the scenery was spectacular. Add great food to the mix and you have a recipe for a fabulous vacation.
This is a very long report because it’s written mainly to document my trip for my family, friends and us. I will post it in sections so it’s easier to read. Since there’s no quiz at the end you can skim, skip or ignore it – I’ll never know. But if you do read it I hope you enjoy it and that it will be of use.
