I mentioned on my last post that after the campsite we stayed in this very beautiful, old house in Lorgues, Var, Provence France. A whole week of good food, plenty of French wine, a lot of fun and bonding with the whole family. The house is surrounded with a lot of olive trees, beautiful view wherever you look and has a swimming pool where the kids spent their time most of the time.
During our stay, we went to the “French Market” in the village of Lorgues on a Tuesday. In the market, were stalls of fresh produce, stalls of fruits and vegetables, stalls of cheese and bread and stalls of clothes and bags standing alongside each other. Locals and tourists are wandering the streets up and down enjoying the cozy experience. When you get tired of all the walking you can treat yourself a glass of beer or two.
The next day, we drove to The Grand Canyon of Verdon or Gorges du Verdon in the Alpes de Haute of Provence. It is very beautiful view from top to bottom. It was a long drive if we continue to the other end of the canyon therefore we decided to turn and head back to Lac de Sainte Croix or Saint Croix Lake. A very relaxing beach with its own beauty and pristine blue water plus the magnificent view. The lake is a busy place for everybody, a place for picnic and swimming. Sailing, boating, kayaking, pedal boating are some of the activities here.
Yes, one very hot day in Saint Tropez when we visited the place. Swimming in French Riviera helps a lot to freshen everybody. Martin always loved the water, there is no exemption this time. We enjoyed the trip despite the heavy traffic to get in and out in Saint Tropez.
Thanks to my in-laws and Thomas’ brother and family for a great vacation we had. I can’t wait for another free holiday from Nanette and Tage (fingers cross) just kidding. Until next time.
