The Provence region in southern France is dotted with quaint little stone villages most nestled on top of a hill overlooking fields of lavender or crops. Road tripping in this area is essential if you’re visiting France and every 20minutes you’ll come across beautiful towns like Lacoste, Cucuron, Loumarin, Ansouis and Gordes.
For now here is a small collection of images to take you on a short walk through these Provençal gems and spark a little wanderlust this weekend…

Ahhhh MON PROVENCE! I lived down there for 4 months and this just reminded me of how much I miss that beautiful, peaceful place. Stunning photos.

Whether it’s Paris or these enchanting village, France is hypnotic for me, it is nourishing, healing, inspiring. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be. And like you Lisa, I love to share with anyone who agrees!
