A family holiday in the Provence ....

Since we have been home for a couple of weeks now, it's high time for a post about our holiday in France.

Despite an unfortunate fall just before we left, which made our holiday look
 something different than we had in mind, we had a wonderful time.

Luckily we already booked a room halfway our trip in Dijon - where
 we had a lovely wander to stretch our legs and my injured back had a good rest afterwards ....



After another day travelling we arrived at our welcoming 'home from home' for the next two weeks ....

 

After some relaxing (and still a little sedated by painkillers ) days at our private pool .... 


I took the plunge to have a little trip to the picturesque commune Port Grimaud
where we also had a lovely meal with a view ....



A few days later we also visited the market town Lorgues to visit the weekly market ....



And it was in the same town where I found this gorgeous authentic french linen .... 


After a week we went (very early) for a visit to the wonderful city Nice to pick up
 our middle son who would join us for the second week.
After a super fast visit to the airport, we had Crêpes for breakfast at the beach ....


And afterwards a lovely visit to the old town 'Vieille Ville' of this colourful city ....





And the wonderful Place Masséna ....


Surrounded by the most beautiful flowers ....


After passing this wonderful wine estate several times, a visit to Château d'Astros  was a real must .... 






A lovely photo taken by my sister-in-law ....


Though we've visited the Provence many times before, we never been to the lovely
 town Sainte-Maxime ....


Overlooking the bay of Saint-Tropez ....


Beautiful white Oleander everywhere ....


Gorgeous doggies ....


Lovely squares ....


And where I bought my lovely dress from Blanc du Nil ....


And last but not least we visited the historic city Aix-en-Provence ....



With so many beautiful details on almost every facade ....




We had such a good time as a family, not in the least because of the 
lovely company by my-sister-in law
(the next photo also from her hand) and her husband.
All those precious moments and all the beauty around our holiday
 home was so hard to left behind ....








And now, back home again, we immerse ourselves
 with all beauty and cosiness Autumn brings.
Like lovely autumnal walks ....


On my new Boots ....


And having a cuppa in lovely company Emoticon Facebook mouse


Getting cosy indoors with a warm Fleece Blanket ....


And outdoors with an autumnal display in this Zinc Container ....


Keeping the french vibes alive (and thinking already about Christmas)
 with this authentic French Linen Table Runner ....


The last few weeks have been very busy, adding new autumn items to the Website 
If you fancy a look, all can be found on here! 

Have a lovely Sunday evening, have a good week!
