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 France Living magazine, Expedia online Paris Guide, 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 (listed below) are also featured on the site, and I’ve reviewed French cooking classes in Southern France and hotels in Corsica and Provence.

You can reach me via email at:
