“Rustic refinement marks the gardens of Provence, surrounded by a colourful patchwork of fields, vineyards & olive groves. On terraced hillsides of medieval hill towns, stylists like Nicole de Vésian have invented a kind of soft minimalism inspired by wilder landscapes, while old country estates and bastides stimulate contemporary design talent, both local and of international renown, producing elegant, sensuous gardens for gracious living. Spring comes early in Provence. May is the time of strawberries & asparagus, with a grand display of roses. We are fortunate to lunch in private gardens as well as in picturesque market towns. Most of the gardens visited are accessible only with Louisa Jones and many have appeared already in the pages of Country Life. We have carefully selected two hotels: The Hôtel d’Europe 5* nestles in the heart of the medieval city of Avignon. This airy, elegant hotel is in a quiet location within easy walking distance of the Pope’s Palace & many interesting shops & restaurants. La Coquillade 5*, has been developed from an ancient hamlet surrounded by vineyards, woodland & lavender fields. The hotel is run to the highest standards, and offers wonderful food & ambience”.
