#travelmemories of breakfast by the pool at the wonderful Elephant de #Vaugines B&B #foodiefriday
#travelmemories of where we were a couple of weeks ago: pretty little medieval #dolceaqua with its arched bridge, subject of a famous Monet painting #italianriviera #throwbackthursday
An #italianriviera charmer for #WindowboxWednesday - #dolceaqua, tucked away in the hills above the coast
Stuffed into a totally full flight across the Atlantic... breathing deep and remembering a peaceful seaside evening in #cassis....aaaah
Stopped by another provençal favorite to catch the sunset: ever-delightful #cassis. Those 2 boats front right are for water jousting competitions - very fun to watch!
Today at the market, #aixenprovence - don't think we'll be taking that watermelon home!
Such a classic cutie in #pezenas #asundaycarpic #southoffrance #occitanie
Cool off on a hot summer day with the splashing fountain of #vaugines in the lovely #luberon #provencedream
This piece of paradise, a B&B with the unlikely name of The Elephant of Vaugines, is so gorgeous and relaxing that we chose to stay right here and have a light dinner with this glorious view rather than hop over to one of the nearby adorable provençal villages - can you blame us?! https://vaugines.com/ #luberon #vaugines #provencedream
A stroll through #lourmarin is always a good idea :) #provence #southoffrance
#lavender fields forever...the #valensole plateau in #hauteprovence
Enjoying a delicious dinner accompanied by the song of #cicadas by the iconic #etangdecucuron #luberonnights
Just a few little touches add so much eye-appeal! Seen on an #antibes lane last week. #ThrowbackThursday #cotedazur
From breakfast to dinner, we're enjoying every meal with friends in the beautiful courtyard of #labellecour in the #southoffrance
What a perfect way to end a day at #labellecour in #vias l- a #sunset stroll on long sandy #viasplage! It's gorgeous here for months more - book a week and enjoy it for yourself! #bookdirect https://musicandmarkets.com/la-belle-cour/
Get me to the church on time! The wedding limo in #biot on the #frenchriviera #sundaycarpic
We've come back to Aix tonight for a vernissage, the opening night party of a week long art exposition of the marvelous works of @jillsteenhuis_artinprovence and Serge and Sergio Ruffato, her husband and son who are sculptors. One glorious piece after another, beautifully displayed in the home and garden of their friends.
The prettiest lane in old #antibes #vielleville #cotedazur
So it's the #fetedesaintpierre in #antibes - fireworks over the ramparts!
Tasted anything good lately? We're eating our way along the Riviera in Italy and France. This was a memorable and delicious appetizer at Marcellino high above the #italianriviera in the tiny hamlet if #seborga #foodiefriday #edibletravels
Vertical #villefrancesurmer - a #riviera delight!
Colorful #villefranchesurmer is home base tonight - back in the #southoffrance
Drydocked in #bordighera on the #italianriviera
#apricale, one of the #borghipiubelliditalia (prettiest villages of Italy) high in the hills of the backcountry of the #italianriviera
Colors of the #italianriviera - #sanlorenzoalmare
The prettiest square in #seborga - the parish church of St.Martin and the Coat of Arms of the proud little principality - a fascinating detour high above the #italianriviera
Lunch with a view in the tiny principalityof #seborga, proudly independent above the #italianriviera since 954!
Dinner by the sea - nearly 10 in #sanremo
An eye-popper of a home in #costarainera, a village perched above the #italianriviera - that would sure wake me up in the morning!
Wandering around #lapigna, old #sanremo - eye candy around each corner!
Today at the market #sanremo - a favorite from decades ago! We have a photo in our Virginia kitchen of the beautiful produce here from the '90s!
We've headed east for some seaside fun since our apartment in Aix is rented - can you guess where we are?
#sunsetsunday stroll in #aixenprovence
Summer blooms on an Aixoise lane #aixmaville #aixenprovence
Today at the market #aixenprovence . ..the temperature's rising, grab your chapeau here!
Are we just lolling around in the #southoffrance? Not yet - first we've got to paint #thisoldhouse! Our daughter Sunshine and partner Gabriel @digitalnomadsinlove began the arduous project of refreshing the very faded walls last month, and we're finishing it before the first summer renters arrive. It will be back to a cheery lemon yellow as it was when we bought it 15 years ago.
The colors of France light up the #vias town hall each night
Bountiful baskets adorn the #vias market hall just steps from La Belle Cour in the #southoffrance - get in touch to spend a week or so in this sweet little seaside village! https://musicandmarkets.com/la-belle-cour/
#barcelona skies - stopped me in my tracks as I walked my jetlag off on my Thursday layover #travelmemories
