Women from Canada and from the USA have joined me this week to tour Provence. Provence is known for its breath-taking sceneries, its historical hilltop villages and its art. We saw all that, but its natural beauty was at the heart of this week’ s delights.
Camargue is always a highlight, with the visit of Thibaud Ranch, where Olivier and his friends always put on a show just for us.
Roussillon with its ocher walk is a kind of fairy land, with magical colors.
In Les Baux, houses are nested in cliffs around the medieval castle, or down below the village walls.
In Saint Remy de Provence, Van Gogh also discovered the beauty of nature and depicted it on many of his paintings. We visited the hospital where he stayed and painted a few months before his death.
We took pictures of all of that, and we will again tomorrow, when we will admire the Pont du Gard, one of the most impressive roman ruins in Provence.
