Mas Bernardo

Have you seen the new house on our houses web site?

Mas Bernardo

We have some late summer availability

Phew what a scorcher

Time to head for the shade and relax. 37 degrees and its hot, hot, hot. The swimming pool beckons or the shade of the oleander. Summer in Provence is well and truly here.

Photographing the Photographers

A few fields away from us M. Cavana decided to plant some sunflowers for the first time in eight years. Despite everybody’s picture of Provence with sunflowers, the “tournasol” crop yield is far better in the south west of France and thus a field of sunflowers is quite rare in the Luberon these days. M. Cavana’s efforts have been certainly appreciated this year, I don’t know if it will be profitable for him but everybody has certainly taken away some great shots.

Courgette flower lunch

Coustellet market, stalls groaning with fresh fruit and vegetables and at last, that favourite summer treat, courgette flowers. Lightly fried tempura style in a beer batter and accompanied with nothing more than a fresh baguette - fantastic!
