There remain few images as alluring as bicycles gliding past the sweeping purple fields of lavender of Provence, while in the background magnificent stone farmhouses stand watch over the surrounding natural majesty, and the cicadas chirp their merry song.
There is something almost dreamlike in the pastoral beauty of Provence; an air of tranquillity and timelessness that transcends easy classification, a certain je ne sais quoi that can only really be done justice by being there.
Provence, and indeed much of the South of France, is a place where life slows down, where simple pleasures are drawn into sharper focus; a rough-torn shred of fresh bread and its scattered crust crumbs on a plate, the gentle breeze rustling rows of grape vines or swaying the lavender, a lump of cheese fresh from the market resting on a battered teak board, the paper its wrapped in a little crumpled, the rays of the late afternoon sun pouring through a glass of rosé... these simple everyday images take on a new air of importance. In Provence, the world is a poem, its sensuous delights for you to appreciate and indulge in, at your own pace, at your own choosing.
