An afternoon in Paris – France

By Rosie | October 24, 2017

I went to Paris for a long weekend with my husband to see one of our friends before the big move to the USA. I haven’t seen him in over a year so it was really nice to spend some time with him again after so long! We lived in Paris around 5 years ago…

Villefranche-sur-Mer – France

By Rosie | October 11, 2017

Villefranche-sur-Mer is a beautiful seaside town located just next to Eze (see blog post here). It’s between Nice & Monaco on the French Riviera and the buildings are beautiful and bright! I drove here from Eze and parked down at the port. I knew that Villefranche-sur-Mer was famous for its beautiful seafront with bright buildings,…

Eze – France

By Rosie | October 10, 2017

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…

Gorges du Verdon – Take Two

By Rosie | September 4, 2017

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…

Provence Lavender and Sunflower Fields – France

By Rosie | July 26, 2017

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. There are also several lavender festivals throughout Provence in the summer months. They sell lavender ice creams, lavender honey and…

Gorges du Verdon – France

By Rosie | July 20, 2017

So this was one of my trips that didn’t go to plan, at all! Oops! We set off from our place at 10am, heading straight to the Gorges du Verdon but happened to stop at the Cascade de Sillans on the way. We loved it so much that we stayed for around 4 hours!! If…

Toulon Beach – France

By Rosie | July 2, 2017

Toulon beach is my favourite beach on the South coast of France. There is free parking (which is almost impossible to find at other beaches). Plus the car park is pretty huge and I always find a space. Parking may be a weird thing to first mention but when you visit the beach as much…
