This week we are off to one of my favourite places in the world... Provence! After an intentional 5 year absence in fact.
Provence is such a favourite, my husband and I were married there and haven't returned since. We have since been totally pleasure delaying. But this year marks our 5 year wedding anniversary, so it was time to re visit this gorgeous region, which hold an incredibly special place in our hearts.
So I thought id share some photos from one of our last trips there. Taken before my blog even existed, these are a bit of a blast from the past. Its interesting to me to see how far my photography has come!
Dress is an old one from ASOS but I found some alternatives below
One of our favourite towns and arguably the most beautiful in Provence is Gordes and I cannot wait to revisit. I'll never forget the first time I say this epic town into the mountains. I literally could not believe my eyes, and I totally fell in love.

And once you make it inside the little town, it does not disappoint with its painted shutters and cute cafes.
On this trip we stayed at a lovely little Gite, just outside of Avignon. La Tour Vaucros is made up of a large Chateau and 4 former out buildings now made into quaint gites. We chose La Restanque des oliviers.
It great to have a base in Provence, at least for a few days so that yo can get out and explore the area without having to unpack and re pack when changing hotels. It also means that you can make full use of the amazing markets Provence has to offer. I think our ideal is a mixture of both, as there are also some amazing hotels to discover.
But where possible, its always a great idea to find something with a pool. You'll literally want to throw yourself in it after a day exploring in the summer heat.
You can follow along with our week in Provence next week on Instagram stories if you like :-)
