Last night was our annual visit to the
International Piano Festival at La Roque d'Antheron. The concert started
at 9 and we'd decided to have supper in the village at a local restaurant
in the main street.
To set the scene, Roque d'Antheron
isn't too formal but it is a very serious musical event with the best players
in the world performing. Imagine our hilarity when an hour before the
performance a local tractor comes trundling along the street towing a very
large trailer with grand piano on it obviously destined for the concert venue.
Things are different in real Provence.
As you can see this is not a small affair. We think as many as 5000 attend each night
Real Provence is a small independent tour operator specialising in holidays in three beautiful and distinctively different areas of Provence which together make up the area we call 'real Provence' - the Parc Naturel du Luberon, the Alpilles area around St. Rémy and the Cotes du Rhone area of the Dentelles.
This blog is about our work, lives in the Luberon and the holidays our clients have with us. We also let holiday houses which are sometimes featured here as well.
