We have celebrated Easter in Provence for the last 30 years. Over that time we have become familiar with most all villages and have found our favorite restaurants, shops and bakeries along the way. The last few years we have found we do less sightseeing, as we are so famliar with the area, but enjoy going out for lunch, spending the afternoon reading a book in the garden soaking up the sunshine or attending an antiques market and then preparing a simple evening meal with produce and specialties from local markets. Although we did do our share of relaxing over our two-week stay, we did visit two wonderful gardens - one in Villeneuf opposite Avignon and the other one in the town of Uzes. We have not been to Uzes for at least 20 years and had completely forgotten how wonderful this city is. We also found a very romantic small village close to Apt called Saignan. Of course, the food was wonderful, as always, and we tried a few new restaurants which were recommended by my brother. The following photo tour will give you a taste of what our spring visit was like.
Maria & Dieter
We are a German couple living near the romantic Rhine valley and the cities of Cologne and Bonn in Germany. Three years ago we met Susan through the internet and have become great friends. We have so much in common and share a passion for antiques, good food and traveling, that it is fun to meet and do things together. Over the last 3 years we have met Susan and her sister Eileen in Paris, Germany and the USA. We are already planning our next trips to Provence and Prague and Dieter and I feel honored to provide photos, comments, reports and recipes from Europe to Susan and Eileen's blog.
