Welcome to Perfectly Provence, the food, travel and lifestyle magazine, for travellers and expats, heading to the South of France.

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 ideas, travel tips and expat 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 with the goal of collecting a picture 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 Provençal 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:

  • Expat Living & Real Estate (Expat Stories, Expat Resources, Buying Real Estate, Learning French)
