Postcards from Provence

“Postcards from Provence” is a phrase that evokes the picturesque beauty of the southern region of France known for its stunning landscapes, colourful markets, and charming villages. It’s a popular destination for tourists, artists, and writers seeking inspiration from its unique culture and atmosphere.

Instagram is probably the medium of choice these days, but we’re a bit old-fashioned, so some possible postcards we would want to send from Provence might feature:

  • Lavender Fields: Provence is famous for its fragrant lavender fields, which bloom in the summer months. A postcard could show a sea of purple flowers with a picturesque village or mountain range in the background.
  • Hilltop Villages: Many of the villages in Provence are perched on hilltops and offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside. A postcard could feature a narrow street lined with stone houses and a village church.
  • Sunflowers: In addition to lavender, sunflowers are also a common sight in Provence. A postcard could show a field of towering sunflowers with a bright blue sky in the background.
  • Markets: Provence is known for its vibrant markets where locals and tourists alike can sample the region’s fresh produce, cheeses, and wines. A postcard could show a bustling market square with colorful stalls and the hustle and bustle of shoppers.
  • Roman Architecture: Provence has a rich history dating back to Roman times, and many of its towns and cities feature well-preserved Roman ruins. A postcard could show a beautifully preserved Roman amphitheater or aqueduct.
