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 the Provence.

You can reach me via email at:

Thank you very much for your interest in Belle Provence Travels.
