About

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 dreamt 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 couple of years ago we finally achieved our dream of owning our own little bolt-hole there and now lead a split life between Devon and Provence, spending as much time as we can there, 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.

    Lovely! I’m struggling with a 5.5 year “fear of flying…” … but the minute I can get over it, I’m hoping to spend a month in France! We lived in Valence for one year, but I flew home to California many times that year to a sick dad. Hoping next May to fly out… I don’t want to miss Fête de la Musique in Provence! I just adore your blog!! Hope to meet you there sometime for a bike ride.

    1. Thank you so much, I’m so pleased you enjoy it…. The fear of flying must be hard and I hope you can overcome it, although I know it will take time… The goal of a month in France should help, especially around the time of the Fête de la Musique…. Take care & thanks again
