Mediterranean sunshine and rolling vineyards, lavender fields and sunflowers: the postcard image of Provence. But there's so much more to this region than just sunshine and scenery (which we have in abundance, by the way!). There are wonderful street markets in the labyrinthine medieval towns and villages. There are the sensational wines of the Côtes du Rhône, the Ventoux and the Luberon (reason alone to visit!). And the sophisticated cultural centres of Aix-en-Provence and Avignon. It's a region that just keeps on surprising! The area has excellent transport, being at the junction of the A7 & A9 motorways, whilst the Avignon TGV station offers a Eurostar hub. For those wishing to fly there is the choice of airports: Avignon-Provence, Marseille-Provence and Nimes, all less than an hour away.
I arrived in Provence in 2002, working for a large tour operator, for whom I later worked as a contract negotiator. The following year I bought my first French property: a 17th century house in a village not far from Avignon. It was a renovation project that I completed in collaboration with local builders and craftsmen. I later became a certified "maçon" (builder) and helped many other people with their own renovation projects. As a Leggett agent, I'm now delighted to be able to help others realise the same dream that I had, and have helped many to find their own place in this incredibly beautiful and historic region of France.
