Rosie Andre

Eze is a stunning old hilltop town situated between Nice and Monaco on the South East coast of France. I came here for a little day trip on my own in September and I have no idea why it has taken me 5 years of living in Provence to come here! The town is only…

We came back to the Gorges du Verdon and I am so glad that we did! It was worth the drive to be able to go on a boat down the beautiful gorges. It was a stunning hot day in July when we went. It was super busy, but I think that added to the…

The best time to see the famous Provence lavender fields is from late June to mid August. Although this does depend on where you go, the weather that year & when they harvest the lavender.
