Doors & Windows of Provence – softcover book

If you’ve ever wondered around the streets and lanes of Provence villages, you’ll know that the doors and windows are as varied as they are picturesque. We just can’t get enough of them!

This little book will be a welcome addition to your home – especially if you’d like a year-long reminder of your lovely family holiday in Provence or if you’re planning the next one. They’re also lovely as mementos or gifts for family, friends and all fellow Francophiles – or even as a little Christmas stocking filler.

Each page of the calendar boasts a carefully chosen selection of some of our favourite doors and windows of Provence – in a myriad colours, shapes and page designs. Locations we explored in the making of this book include Lourmarin, Lacoste, Ansouis, Roussillon, Gordes and Menerbes.

This limited edition, 20-page softcover photo book is printed on high-quality glossy paper and measures 2ocm x 20cm.

Book introduction:

“I can’t think of a single day in Provence that I’ve seen a door, window or set of shutters I didn’t want to photograph. Even the most wonky, derelict or crumbly ones are somehow still beautiful and captivating.

“Perhaps it’s that they each naturally present their own visual frame. Or maybe it’s the human embellishments, casually but elegantly placed (in the way that only the French can do) that create a little optic exclamation point: “Look at me!”

“Whatever the reason, I find myself compelled to stop every few yards of any walk through the village and country lanes of Provence to “ooh” at a doorway. Perhaps you’ve done the same?

Having shared some of these images with long-suffering friends and on social media, I’ve discovered that I’m not alone in this passion. So I hope that my small ode to Provençal portals gives you pleasure too. They’re not captioned but perhaps you’ll recognise a few from your own visits to Lourmarin, Gordes, Ansouis, Lacoste, Arles, Bonnieux, Oppède-les-Vieux, Cucuron, Peypin-d’Aigues, Grambois, Vaugines, Cotignac, Roussillon …”
