We just returned from a trip of a lifetime in the beautiful countryside of the south of France- Provence. My husband Steve and I vacationed with our good friends Lori and Steve to celebrate Lori’s 50th birthday. We enjoyed every moment of our Tauck Culturious Tour and the accomodations, the excursions and the culinary delights were spectacular. I shot over 900 photographs and while I will not share all of them. It was hard to edit which ones I would share. So I thought it best to post a few each day.

We arrived a day earlier than the tour to relax and explore Aix on our own. Here are a few shots from our day of exploring…

Breakfast was served every morning here in this gorgeous dining room of Le Pigonnet.
