Living in Provence Let the Home Renovation Begin

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

It’s well over 2 years now since we finally picked up the keys and opened the door to our little house in Provence after so many years of dreaming about it. We couldn’t afford a perfect house with elegant gardens and a pretty pool and always knew that our little place would need a bit of work to really get it as we wanted it, but lack of funds meant that the renovations would have to wait.

…Continue reading here for Julie’s article on how the family has eased into living in Provence. They have spent three (3) summers semi-camping in their little home in the Luberon. The house has given the Whitmarsh crew a base from where they enjoy the easy access to hiking, biking, and scouring for home decor finds at nearby brocantes.

Now, it’s time to move beyond a single washroom, tiny kitchen and bedroom without walls. Watch for details on this renovation in Provence. They have found a contractor, finalised their plans, and have turned their attention back to the brocantes to look for decorative finishes for their soon to be converted space.

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.
