Welcome to Perfectly Provence, the food, travel and lifestyle magazine for the South of France and the French Riviera. Our audience includes visitors and residents who want authentic experiences and high-quality content.


Provence is a place that many hope to visit “one day.”

And we hope that you do!


In the meantime, allow our contributors to tempt you with their articles about local wines, dining experiences, regional recipes and cooking classes, accommodation options and shopping ideas. These writers are based in Provence or visit often. The team shares informative articles about current events, cultural happenings, unique personalities, touring plans, travel tips, and living in France.


My name is Carolyne Kauser-Abbott, I am a Canadian, but my husband would agree my heart is in Provence. After spending time in the region, I realized that Provence is a place with such vast geography, brilliant natural landscapes and a diverse palette of cultures that it would be impossible to do the area justice through one person’s words. Perfectly Provence launched in October 2014 to collect an image of Provence through the eyes of many. 


Our Perfectly Provence contributors are threaded together by their shared passion for the region. Their backgrounds are varied and include; writing, information technology, marketing, cooking, fundraising, construction, tour operations, wine expertise and much more. These stories help us to create a unique collection of Provencal content presented in a digital magazine.


Perfectly Provence brings together inspired articles by these knowledgeable writers in one place. The stories fall into the following categories:


EXPLORE: There is nothing better than credible local knowledge when you travel. Our articles feature road trip itineraries, top reasons to visit a location, insider’s travel tips and recommended small-group tours.


TASTE: You love food and wine, but you don’t want to waste your hard-earned money on mediocre culinary experiences. Enjoy the mouth-watering archive of posts on feature restaurants, chef profiles, artisan food products, cooking schools, wine tours and culinary adventures in the region.


STAY: At Perfectly Provence, we feature specific private properties, luxury hotels, self-catered rentals and other accommodation options in the region. Nothing will turn a holiday sour faster than poor accommodation.
