  1. Ohhhh, memories! I once stayed in Apt at the most beautiful apartment for a week. Each day we traveled out from there to explore that part of France. Beautiful!

    3. It;d awfully short for a bollard....many cars, especially those awful SUVs could drive right over it! Perhaps the camera angle is misleading me.

    Thanks for whetting my appetite for my trip. After a week in Paris, I am doing a small group tour of Provence, and we will be in this area for a few days. Can't wait, as it looks fabulous!

  11. I LOVE this village! Spent a week there a few years ago in a gite with 5 or 6 painters. I was the chauffer and the only one speaking French. It was the last week in June with the poppys and lavender in full bloom. The market day in Apt is very good.

  13. love the Luberon, Carol! My daughter did her junior year abroad in Avignon and I got to spend 30 days with her that December/January. We visited Apt and the Gorge as well as so many other historic and beautiful places nearby! I never made it to the marché in Apt, but I've heard it is terrific! I'll be looking forward to more photos of your stay and maybe some watercolors???

  17. What a killer opening shot, Carol - and all that follow.
    We're not seeing much of a spring here in RI - chilly and rainy.

  18. Oh, I missed this place on my recent trip to Provence, what a shame! Looks lovely!

  19. bought one of my favorite scarves nearly 12 years ago now in the market in Apt . . . one of those things I picked up without thinking too much of it and has turned out to be something that I wear again and again all spring and fall.
