I mean, I know there’s the scenery and the wine and the food, but Nathalie who runs Avignon in Photos is also a pretty good reason to visit Provence.

Anyway, we had a most pleasant late afternoon together with her excellent friend Michel, lounging next to the pool overlooking the valley, talking about all and sundry and polishing off a bottle of wine before heading back down the hill (and studiously avoiding the hellhole that is Carpentras) on the way back to the palce we were renting.
