Thursday’s Retreat: Provence

thursday retreat provence 6.jpg

In the south of France, especially Provence, there is a certain atmospheric sensation that hits you. It might be that the air is fragrant with lavender and jasmine, or maybe the scent is coming from tables of farmhouses filled with grapes, cheeses, and country food. In Provence stone terraces are lined with hygrandeas and the 19th century paintings we love come alive.

The best way to grasp the nuances of a different culture is to submerge yourself within it, but for today we are bringing you the next best thing: photographs. Today we’re showing you the beauty of Provence with photographs of country interiors, lavish houses and the charm of Provence, France. Enjoy!
