I have been captivated by the beauty, warmth and peacefulness of Provence for over 20 years. Having traveled through many parts of the world, it is the most beautiful and compelling area I have come across in my travels. The combination of beautiful scenery, historic villages, cosmopolitan towns, excellent restaurants and wonderful climate is unrivaled. Hence, I was very pleased to purchase a property in the region, to which I will eventually retire.
