Superb concert in Oppede le Vieux

For the second year, the old church in the ruined medieval village of Oppede le Vieux has hosted three fabulous concerts. Yesterday a mixture of pieces from Verdi, Handel and Mozart were just wonderful. A not to be missed summer concert in the Luberon.

Its that concert time of year in Provence

The concert season is in full swing in Provence starting this week with the superb Chamber Music Festival in Salon. This festival gathers together artists who are the very best in their field for some superb musical evenings in lovely historical locations. The Chateau de L'Emperi and the Abbaye de St. Croix are just two of the venues.

Beautiful Aix

The lovely old buildings of Aix - a real treat for the eyes whether at night with their atmospheric lighting or in the day catching the rays of the Provencal winter sun
