  • Ile de Re - perfect Atlantic holiday island in France 3 years ago Welcome to a magical little island on the French Atlantic coast.  My perfect place to just be!  I have visited many times so why do I keep going back.  From the colourful La Rochelle it is reached by a great arching bridge to tranquility, a stylish and perfect French experience along with...
  • Hotel and Chalet Le Croix Fry - authentic, charming special winter retreat 3 years ago I was a little nervous as I secured a place in the Alps; this time last year I was being helicoptered off a mountain having fractured a pelvic bone. Set me back a little but didn’t take the passion away. I’d always wanted to return to this little place in the Aravis Mountains not far from...

  • Take a trip to the beautiful Aix en Provence 4 years ago The approach to the town never fails to stir.  As you descend into the gentle valley in which this ancient regional capital lies, you sense that something special awaits, the sentinel presence of Mont St Victoire, which looms up over one edge of the town, providing a clue.

Loved reading this, since we too have had a love affair with Provence for many years, and actually made our plan work in 2005, when we moved from Solihull( near Stratford upon Avon). I have got to know yourvery good friend "Grace "--we both do Pilates classes at the same little wonderful gym. I'm living in Salernes ( celebre pour les carrelages ! )while as you know --Grace lives in neighbouring Villecroze. Your pictures of the Valensole Plateau have inspired us to visit next June---though I do have lots of lavender bushes--which I'm now cutting + drying ! We know St. Remy ,and Maussane very well---we used to stay on hols in the 80s. You have also captured the essence of St. Tropez, which we love to visit in March or October ( for the grande Braderie--when all the shops slash their prices--Kiwi Bikinis for around 10 Euros !
