Provence in May 2019

This year eight intrepid travelers joined Annette, Rita, and me in a beautiful farmhouse in Pertuis, Provence. The owners converted the farmhouse, complete with stables and a few outbuildings — one of the bathrooms still had the feeding trough within it. There were many nooks to explore in this home with a unique spot for meditation in one of the smaller buildings and an excellent great room for yoga practice. We were able to practice yoga outdoors on the patio when the weather was a little warmer, and we had several dinners outside too. It was really a lovely setting to rest and restore, and enjoy the amazing French countryside.

Colorado of Provence. It was a little scary out on that ledge, but worth the climb.

Next door to our farmhouse was a horse farm. These lovelies were huge! Percherons are just a little smaller than clydesdales.
This is part of an ancient cedar forest on top of the mountain. It was such a calming forest. There were signs asking visitors to keep silence to maintain the meditative vibe. It was ethereal.
Yoga! Yes, we did lots of yoga. It was a special treat in the afternoon sunlight.
“Colorado” means red in Spanish (I am told). Other hikers left these cairns for us to enjoy.
