It’s all about who you know, right? I’m lucky enough to have family friends who live in the heart of the French countryside. Down a bumpy, unpaved road outside of a tiny town that boasts a church, a bakery and a few assorted cafes, they live in utter serenity. I spent a weekend wandering through orchards, picking olives and eating in true farm-to-table style.
The best part is that they’re in the process of renovating their home to become a true bed-and-breakfast. I can’t picture a more relaxing place to spend a vacation! A short drive from the adorable towns of St-Remy-de-Provence and Les Baux, as well as hikes in the Alpilles–but with the Southern France sunshine and a pool, I can’t imagine why you’d ever want to leave.
