Provence Expat Life: When Does a Holiday Stop and Life Begin? 

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

So that’s it – I’m back in the UK after another long summer at our little place in Provence – Andy’s staying on for another couple of weeks, as he came out after me and we always want to use the house as much as possible!

I find it hard to understand where the summer has gone – we’ve done lots of ‘holiday-things,’ but for 11 weeks?

…Continue reading here for Julie’s round-up of their busy extended summer in Provence. This is not a family that lazes idly by the pool. They logged thousands of kilometres on their bikes, with plenty of elevation gain. When they were not peddling they spent time scouring brocantes and vide greniers for treasures. This is a family that has fully embraced the lifestyle in Provence and hope to extend their stays in the future.

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
