Provence is a land of sunshine and hospitality,
with a rather simple laid back approach to life.
This can be perceived as good or bad depending upon
which way you look at it.
But after having been there even a short while, one begins
to lose the stress and pressure that modern life can bring,
and you too would soon slip into this carefree lifestyle.
It is interesting that Provence is older than France itself,
initially being a separate Roman Province with it's own very
strong accented dialect.
Wherever you go you will experience this relaxed attitude
to life, from the appreciation of a glass of wine,
to a gastronomic feast, using local produce along with
fine fragrances created from herbs of the hillsifdes.
Art plays a major roll in most peoples lives with
an abundance of art galleries and museums.
Fashion is casual but smart, and even the visiting public
insist on making purchases of modern Provençal style
living to take home.
There is classical music, jazz, ballet, dancing in the street,
street singers, and opera...something for everyone
and every taste.
What is better than sitting in the sunshine at your local café
with the aroma of good coffee, a croissant or glass of wine,
reading the local newspaper or listening to the buzz
Sit back and relax
this is Provence !!
