Our Provence Dream

30 years ago we fell in love with the Luberon, after stumbling across it, whilst ambling around France in a borrowed caravan. Expecting only to stay for a couple of days we found ourselves leaving with just enough time to get back to the Ferry, we were hooked.

Since then we’ve dreamed of being able to spend more time there, pottering around the back roads on our bikes..


…exploring the area


…and eating with the seasons from the wonderful local markets.


A few years ago we finally achieved our dream of owning our own little bolt-hole there and after a few years of leading a split life between Devon and Provence, we have finally made the leap to make France our permanent home, getting further under the skin of the area that we love.

On this site we’ll share everything from cycling and walking routes, local history, favourite villages, markets and brocante fairs, together with other activities & places we love to visit as well as our ongoing efforts to renovate and furnish our little house.

Some places are well known, but others are a little bit off the beaten track and open up a more hidden Provence than you may find in the guide books.
