I just got back from a two weeks vacation in the Luberon Valley in Provence,France. It's my second time in Provence and this time we decided to rent a house instead of staying in a hotel.It was the right thing to do... less expensive and more pleasant. After few days we were felling like we were locals.... we got to know our neighbor, we became friends with some people from the village.It felt great. The whole area is so beautiful and there are so many villages close by that we decided to rent a car..Every single little village is breath-taking in it's own way. The village of Gordes built on top of a rock hill.... Lacoste with its narrow streets..... Roussillon, famous for its ocher pigments. The centuries old villages with its stone houses,surrounded by fields of lavender , cherrie trees covered with vivid red cherries and the grapevines had a bucolic feel to it. Nothing feels better than having a glass of rose wine at one of the local restaurant overlooking the valley while the sun is saying goodbye for the day and then go back to a home that smells like lavender.... It's relaxing and romantic. It's unforgettable!!!
