The backlanes of Provence in photos

Hi Frugalistas!  I recently posted some very old photos from a trip to Provence on Istagram.  Despite their age they were a great hit, so I’m sharing more today with blog readers.  Forget about the beach and fields of lavender – instead I’m focussing on the little details that make Provence special.  Think quiet backlanes, gorgeous doors and a more private view.  Memories of quiet walks away from the hordes – Provence can be one of those places “too loved” by tourists, but your own private Provence is possible.  What are your favourite memories of Provence?

    Beautiful! I also love to take pictures of deserted streets, old doors, narrow corridors. And I’ve done so in Arles, Avignon, Les Baux. Have you been to Uzes?

      Me too! Even though they were taken on an old camera they stand up well because they are just so quaint. We did go to Uzes, but on a different trip (that I’m saving for another day!) Uzes is stunning

    I’ve not been to Provence, but these photos definitely make me want to pack a suitcase and go!

      Thanks Nancie – it’s a very beautiful part of the world! Deciding what to put in and what to leave out was difficult
