Simply France Perfectly Provence Moments

The simple of life in the South of France was the inspiration for Dawn Slieter’s company Simply France with Dawn (you can read the previous post here). These are her ideas of #PerfectlyProvence moments:


Cotes du Rhone wines: Compare a Chateauneuf-du-Pape with a more reasonable Rhone blend and discover the magic of the terroir and the value of the region.

The pace of the locals – relax on the terrace of a quaint restaurant with a “plat du jour” for a two-hour lunch.

Drive the stunning countryside, take in the roads lined with plane trees and savour the scenic, historic and cultural beauty.

Have coffee on the outdoor patio of a village cafe. Watch, listen and learn from the locals as they know how to enjoy this pure pleasure.

Take a stroll through the village on market day and get some supplies for a picnic. Bring a blanket and a bottle of wine and…voila – all the makings for a leisurely picnic!

Sit on the patio of your villa after a busy day of sightseeing and enjoy a warm Provencal evening with a crisp glass of delicious French rosé. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

Full disclosure: Simply France with Dawn is a Preferred Advertiser with Perfectly Provence. A partner we are proud and thrilled to have as her philosophy matches ours entirely. Dawn agreed to answer a few questions for Perfectly Provence readers.
