Languedoc is a beautiful region just to the west of Provence. It is full of little towns that are built tightly nestled in its beautiful hills. I love that in the midst of tiny passageways connecting doors you see all manor of greenery growing in every possible vessel on every possible surface.

  4. How lovely. That is a truly picturesque region. If you get the chance, visit Ille sur la Sorgue. It’s a beautiful village with the best antique stores and “brocanterie” – weekly flea markets – great treasure hunting!
