Thanks for visiting.   This blog is for family and friends, but all are welcome.  We are an Australian couple living near Lacoste, in the Luberon valley of Provence.  Saffy, our Welsh Springer Spaniel is with us.

Why France?  Because we delight in the villages, the markets, the food, the weather, the four seasons and so much besides.  The people have been warm and welcoming.  We admire how they value heritage,  worship food and enjoy life.  Saffy loves the walks, the forests, the vineyards and the scents of deer, partridge and wild boar.  It’s a magical place to be…………we hope these stories will help you share our experiences.
