Discover Provence with Author Patricia Sands

Now that you have read about Patricia Sands’ books and her Womens Travel Network tour in Provence. We asked her share her Perfectly Provence – Where the local’s go.


  • The authenticity of the old town of Antibes: a vieille ville on the coast between Nice and Cannes, in a most beautiful and historic setting.
  • Les Carrières de Lumières near Les Baux for a surprising and most extraordinary art exhibit
  • A choice of walks on a sentier or a petite randonnée – found throughout Provence along the coast, through vineyards and lavender fields, or up to hilltop villages.

  • La Merenda, Rue Raoul Bosio, Nice (Vieille Ville), for authentic dishes and seriously fine flavours in a unique, shoebox setting where animated conversation is part of the experience. No phone or reservations, it’s worth the wait.
  • Le Bistrot du Paradou, Les Baux, set menu, Provencal recipes, casual and friendly hospitality, and a nice terrace for before or after drinks. Book in advance.
  • Everywhere you go, discover the true pleasure of cheese and be open to tasting and learning about the varieties and what they complement. It’s an education in itself.
