We're an Anglo-French couple who adore traveling and exploring new places. 5 years ago we arrived in Provence and fell in love with the beauty of France's true Provence. We love nature, outdoor life, BBQs, cycling and swimming.
We lived and worked in Canada for five years, then moved back to Paris, before heading south to the Riviera and finally to Provence where we appreciate the relaxed way of life.
We are also keen Airbnb travelers!
