A room with a view - in Provence

A short one to at least update something! Got loads to do this week… :-|

Here is the trip we did in France - it was great! :-)

The nicest place we stayed in was a ‘Chambres d’Hôtes’ (i.e. a B&B en français) – it was called Un Patio en Luberon.

This was our room - called 'Roussillon'
Ansouis, Un patio en Luberon, Chambre Rousillon

and the view from the window
Ansouis, Un patio en Luberon, Chambre Rousillon

It was named after this village, also called Roussillon
Roussillon, Provence

the name of the village is derived from 'rouge' which means 'red' in French, and it is famous for the ochre that is mined there and which colours the buildings

More to come, brief snippets only.
