Julie’s blog ProvencePost.com (now in its sixth year), celebrates everything special about the South of France…for anyone who lives there, travels there or dreams of visiting one day. In early 2012, Julie launched her company Provence Post Travel, arranging highly customized vacations in Provence and on the Cote d’Azur.
