Painted Shutters and the Relaxed Architecture of Provence

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

There is something so wonderful about French buildings and all too often we miss seeing them as we hurry past or simply focus on everything at eye-level. In the past I’ve probably been one of the worst, focusing on just cramming as many of the things love to do into a busy couple of weeks and not really taking the time to take a good look at what’s around me.

…Continue reading here for Julie’s wonderful photos and descriptions of why it is important to slow down in Provence and take in the view of the patinas in the villages. The slightly shabby, yet chic shutters with peeling paint could probably share a story or two. Intricate balcony ironwork and faded doorways beg you to dream about what is inside. Enjoy this post about some of the architectural highlights of Provence.

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.
