Patchwork Landscape In Provence

Seguret

I was hesitant about being pregnant and traveling abroad. I had been sick for the first 14 weeks and at the time of booking our trip I was barely eating anything more then soda crackers. My practical self told me I shouldn’t be wasting money when I had massive house renovation to deal with. With a long list of excuses I decided to book the trip anyway. France turned out to be a celebration of our life together and an experience we will remember for the rest of our lives. We are already planning a trip with baby (hopefully) for next May.

Greg and I loved France and Provence especially. The beautiful scenery and country roads captured us. Our first Sunday in Provence we spent the morning wandering through the antique stores and weekly market in L’Isle sur la Sorgue. From there we drove east with the top down in our rented convertible taking in the sweet smells of spring. We got lost and this is what we found—ancient villages, rolling hills and vistas of patchwork green fields.

  1. I just happened to stop back here, and see you WERE in Seguret! Did you go to the tea shop up there? We stayed in La Bastide Bleu, at the bottom of the hill, several times and just loved it.

  2. Katy- As you know, we took T to France last May when he was 8.5 months old, just a bit older than your munchkin will be. It was a TERRIFIC trip. He slept in the Ergo as we tramped through the Loire valley, and it was easy to adapt the trip to his schedule. You just have to rent houses or apartments vs. hotels (which you already did)!

  3. Hey Katy,

    I moved to Provence two years ago from London and still have to pinch myself every time I look out my bedroom window! Thanks for sharing all your lovely photos …this is the first time I’ve ever comment on a blog but I just loved the idea you’d been wandering around L’Isle sur La Sorgue!!

  4. Just wanted to say I love your blog, and so happy to see you back sharing life’s next adventure. Your comment about your practical self being reluctant to book the trip struck a chord. Our one family indulgence has been travel, and whilst definitely not the most practical choice it is those trips that we look back on and sustain and inspire us. And yes traveling with children is so worth it. Our trips provide some of our greatest collective family memories, the children now identify themselves as “travelers”, and have a world view of life.

    Thank you!

  5. I’m ready to go back. Among many things the French do well, is the attention to aesthetics in their landscaping. I was so inspired when we got back that I trimmed the box woods the day after landing. And all the gardens have been given new life.

    As always, your photos are perfect in capturing the warmth and thefeel for your environment.

  6. Oh, I know those views so well!!! It is a gorgeous place. Were any of these taken from Seguret? (although one fabulous view equals another, in a way….)I’ve never been at this time of year, so have never seen the poppies. Summertime, with the lavender, is also stunning… So glad you loved it so much!
