Contributor blog post by Ashley Tinker:

April Tendencies in Provence

So I’m perhaps little nuts but at this time of year, I love to sit in the evening with a glass of wine, talk to my man and shell fresh peas. Those plump lovelies are so delicious it’s worth the effort, and relaxing too. I know I’d probably say something different if I had a couple kids running around but for now- all is peaceful chez moi.

…Continue reading here for Ashley’s long list of events taking place in Provence this April. This coming weekend (April 7-8th) art lovers should head to Arles for Ateliers d’Artisans. However, you might also be tempted to drive to Chateauneuf du Papes to sample some wines from the 85 winemakers attending the annual Printemps Salon des Vins (read Keith Van Sickle’s article here). Enjoy the spring weather and early season produce (asparagus, strawberries), discover pottery markets, flower festivals, and the magic of the transhumance in Provence.

Ashley was born and raised in Montréal, Canada. She has always been drawn to the history, way of life and beauty of Europe. Her feelings for Europe were reconfirmed while studying art in Florence, Italy. Ashley says that stone buildings, colourful shutters and terra cotta tile rooftops fill her dreams and now her days.

Ashley moved to Provence in 2014 with her partner Robin (he also shares her Francophile passions). They are in search of the French joie de vivre, which they find at every turn in the local markets and natural beauty of Provence. This couple are indulging in local olives and wine as the Provencal sunshine changes craggy rocks into things of beauty.
