Provence, mon amour
There is a magical moment when you approach the South of France: cypresses and red-tile roofs appear; you hear the screech of cicadas and breathe the scent of wild thyme and lavender. Along the highway, oleanders bloom on the centre strip against a backdrop of austere, sun-filled landscapes, the very same that inspired the Post-impressionists.
Yes! You have entered Provence, a totally enchanting place where café-sitting, people-watching, and boutique shopping are the savoir vivre that sweetens your days.
