Provence!  I must go back.  It took me three visits to France to make my way there, and I feel, one day, I must visit again.  I stayed in the tiny village of Venterol, with a population of just a couple of hundred people, 5km from Nyons.  The region is known for olives, wine and of course lavender.  I missed the lavender season by a couple of months; all those pesky tourists had gone, I had the windy, village roads pretty much to myself.  Highlights for me and must see towns are Nyons, Avignon, Mt Ventoux, Brantes, Aix-en-Provence, Dieulefit and Poet-Laval.  Of course the wine and the olives are to die for.  Provence is so diverse and has so much to offer.  Don’t think about it, just go!
