colors of the provence

Today’s beautiful weather inspired me to do this post about the Provence, one of my favorite holiday destinations. The food, the wine, the beautiful colors and the beautiful houses with those typical French door shutters … life is good over there!

The blue shutters are typical for the Provence region. You see a lot of houses here with shutters in this particular color.

Isn’t the purple color of the lavender fields stunning!

    What a lovely place! I would like to visit here someday and relax. ;)

  5. Lavander fields always remind me of a quote from the movie ‘The Color Purple’. “I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don’t notice it.”

  6. Ik hou van luiken, dat geeft het huis altijd zo’n gezellig ‘iets’. Mooie foto’s ook, hier zou ik wel willen verblijven tijdens de zomervakantie :)

  7. I´m fascinated with that region, I love the color of the stones that they use to build their houses, I love the lavender fields, the landscape, the little ancient towns, the food and climate. It´s just beautiful.

  12. What a wonderful post! The colors are sublime, my very favourite being the 1st photo, the purple looks so fresh and beautiful on the worn-out house,a lovely contrast. Ada

  13. Wow, those fields! I can’t wait for the fields to turn to color here in Switzerland!

  14. AMAZING!!! Color, photos…. LOVELY!

  15. Although I read your (lovely) blog since a long time, I’ve never wrote but when I saw the 1st pic, I couldn’t resist as I know it well. It is from a village called La Turbie, close to the italian fronteer (and Monte-Carlo). It is of a very very very good restaurant (small hotel too) called Hostellerie Jérôme : http://www.hostelleriejerome.com/ They have also a kind of bistrot, cheaper, in the same village.
