Calfornia native based in the south of France since 2010. Travel writer, wife and mother – lover of rosé wine and the Provençal lifestyle.
Sharing the joys of living in belle Provence.
Welcome to Belle Provence Travels – a France travel & lifestyle blog based in Provence. This site is dedicated to my experiences living in the south of France, and some of the fun places & interesting people I’ve met along the way. You’ll also find travel recommendations and packing guides.
Since starting this site, I’ve contributed to publications like
Living France magazine, Berkshire-Hathaway, and the Charming Small Hotels (France edition) guidebook. In 2019, I became the France Correspondent for International Living magazine.
France-related book and product giveaways are also featured, and I’ve reviewed cooking classes in southern France and hotels in Corsica and Provence.
Thank you for your interest in Belle Provence Travels.
