Bonjour mes amis! This week Mais Oui Paris is brought to you from Provence! We are spending a week in this gorgeous part of southern France with our dear friends Martha and Leigh from Houston. Martha and I decided several years ago that we would take an “Empty Nesters” trip to France together when our youngest daughters went away to school. Of course, when we made the plan, we had no idea that Mark and I would be living in Paris, but that happy fact seemed only to make the trip more doable. As Martha says, we thought about the trip for years and planned it in a day.
After sifting through many houses on V.R.B.O., we finally found a house in St. Remy-de-Provence that was just right.
Most of the homes in this area are tucked away behind painted metal gates and tall hedges. Here is our gate.
Once inside the gate, you see this darling house.
This pool is in front of the house.
Here is the back side.
The house has three bedrooms and two baths.
I am always a sucker for these old patterned floors.
This wonderful light fixture is in a bedroom. I want it.
We have been spending most of our days exploring the area, returning in the evening to cook here or eat in a restaurant in St. Remy. The only bad thing about this house is that it’s not located in the village, which means we can’t walk around the corner for morning pastries. That is also a good thing about this house.
This concludes today’s episode of Vacation Homes International! Stay tuned for accounts of our days in this glorious part of France.
