I am a kiwi girl living in the South of France and loving it!!! Especially the 300 days of sunshine, the cheap ( but good wine) the fabulous food and of course the gorgeous French men!!!!
It is in a charming village that dates back to the 11th century and is protected because the famous French write Racine was staying in the local Chateau. The old part of the village is restricted to stone houses with certain colours on the shutters so the whole effect is pleasing to the eye.Perched on a hill and looking out over the lovely country side.
Everything you want to see or visit in the Provence area from 4 mins to an hours drive from the house and nearby kayaking, golf, restaurants ,shops etc.
