    Fell completely in love with Provence last April when I spent a month based in L’isle Sur la Sorgue, traveling each day to a new village. The locals were welcoming and helpful, and the food and wine superb. The scenery unforgettable. A life changing experience.

    Spent the weekend 1/12/20 reading My French Life..It was dreary here in Virginia after the commitments behind us..why not. Fell in love w/this book. Went on to look up Vicky Archer as I felt she had an exceptional gift of expression and communication. For about 24 hrs. was thrown off by the Google Info I received. It features mostly @ Vicky Archer
    ,an afternoon radio commentator/host who is no longer w/us. By her own hand. Yours truly devastated. Both women had the French fever w/ties to London…ages differed..sometimes you cannot believe what you read. My husband got in on the mystery as well. We came to the conclusion there were two Vicky in London and one in Provence. Hopefully the problem is solved in our minds. Tell me if I am right!!

      Hello, Thank you for reading Perfectly Provence and taking an interest in talented writers. I suspect the name Vicki (note not “y”) Archer is quite common. The authour of “My French Life” is Vicki Archer an Australian who lives between London and Provence, when she is not exploring the globe. If you are interested please sign-up for our weekly newsletter (here) for a selection of article on the region.

    Have 2 pots, one for ail and the other for oignons. At the bottom is marked Vallauris.
    While cleaning them I discovered the name Vallauris.
    I think my husband and I bought those pots more than 30 years ago. During our honeymoon.
    Those pots have traveled around the world. Starting France, Belgium, Djibouti, Sudan, Iran, Tanzania, Jordan, Thailand.
    I like to thank you for the pots. They are beautiful and practical and strong otherwise they would have never survived all those moves.
    Thank you.

      Hello, Els thank you for reading the article on Vallauris pottery and following Perfectly Provence. The earthenware needs to be made well to survive all of those moves. We were recently in Marrakesh on a culinary adventure with Pitcher and Powell only to discover that the beautiful, colourful glazed Tagines will not stand the test of time. Lesson learned! Buy quality not “tourist” quality. We hope you enjoy our articles.
