Calfornia native based in the south of France since 2010. Travel writer and part-time blogger, rosé wine lover.
Sharing the joys of living in belle Provence.
Welcome to Belle Provence Travels – a France travel & lifestyle blog based in Provence. I write about my experiences living in the south of France, and some of the fun places & interesting people we meet along the way.
Since starting this site, I’ve contributed to publications like
Living France magazine, EasyJet inflight 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 reviews are also featured on the site, and I’ve reviewed cooking classes in southern France and hotels in Corsica and Provence.
Thank you for your interest in Belle Provence Travels.
