I was taken in by 3 days in Provence. I heard it was beautiful - evocative with beautiful climate, light, lavender fields, suspended hill top villages, beaches close by, sunshine and lots of L'Occitane perfume. All that I discovered to be true and more. Provence really is beautiful. I took Beverley there for a few days for her birthday: Nice, Antibes, Gourdon, St Paul de Vance - we enjoyed them all. All deserve another visit and with reasonably priced flights Provence becomes very accessible. One more thing...the friends we visited are leading a great multi-cultural church.
