Reflections of winter in Provence

The beautiful light of Provence continues throughout the year. Here the winter sun in the village of Roussillon, the reflections of the water in the River Sorgue at Fontaine de Vaucluse and the stunning colours of the cherry trees before leaf fall.

Summer concert time

Two superb concert festivals have just opened in Provence. The International Piano Festival at La Roque d'Antheron and the International Chamber Music Festival in Salon de Provence. What better way to spend a summer evening than a concert under the stars at both of these lovely venues.

Last night was another perfect summer supper with friends. Perhaps worth a little plug for our favourite resto, Le Fournil in Bonnieux.  We've all been going here for the past twenty years and it goes from strength to strength.  Don't know if the guys will be there for ever so maybe worth a visit soon.

Its' almost lavender time in Provence. The fields are beginning to show their colour and it will soon be a carpet of purple and mauves in the Luberon valley. This field near the pretty village of Roussillon in the Luberon valley is already a popular photo stop!

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.

Tranquil Provence

A lovely place to relax on a hot summer day in Provence - the cool etang in the pretty village of Cucuron in the south Luberon.
