Expat Living with Pets It’s a dog’s life in Provence

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

It’s now nearly 4 months since Millie, our Golden Retriever, arrived for her first visit to France and I think it’s fair to say she has settled in very quickly and already considers Provence as home.

I admit that it didn’t start too well, with the first few days being taken up with the ‘War of the Dog Bed’, but she has now managed to secure her position as ‘User-in-Chief’ of the dog bed in front of the fire, just occasionally allowing Pussycat to settle on it to enjoy the warmth…..

Hiking in Provence is a terrific activity with dogs, they are allowed to roam free (off leash) on most trails. Fall and winter months are great for walking, even if it is a bit cold all you need is a jacket and sturdy shoes. Summer months and the associated heat can be a bit trickier for animals, make sure they have shade, water and maybe even a way to cool down in some water.

Julie Whitmarsh

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
