Colourful Windows of Provence
The first week we spent our time driving along the Cote d'Azur. We first picked up our car in Marseille and then did lots of little side trips as we made out way through parts of Provence before hitting the coastal towns and ending our trip in Nice.
The big names of St Tropez, Cannes and Monaco (unfortunately no celebs spotted) are always on the tip of everyones tongue when you think of the Cote d'Azur (French Riviera) but there are lots of little towns along the way which are just as gorgeous with their sparkling clear blue waters!
We also got to visit so many quaint, cute and very french little villages and stayed in some lovely french guest houses. Staying in the guest houses meant we were privvy to some great local knowledge and checked out Gorges Du Verdon (the Grand Canyon of France) and this beautiful lake Lac St Croix where we found lots of holiday makers out on paddle boats.
There is something about France that I never tire of. Each region is very different and the food is to die for, infact i'm yet to have a bad meal over there. I was surprised to realise that this trip to the Cote d'Azur was our 6th visit to France in our 3 years of living in London!! It is actually the country we have most revisited during our time in Europe.

What did we do while there?? - lots of walking, lots of swimming and lots of eating! This type of living is the way it should be!!
