A giant maze, an illuminated art gallery in an old quarry, farmers markets, a Roman amphitheatre and plenty of little French towns clinging to the side of mountains. We fit quite a lot of sightseeing into our week in Provence, but still managed to find time to hang out in our cosy farmhouse. Fresh eggs from the chickens, a menagerie of farm animals, a new litter of puppies and loads of space to run around. Kid paradise. It was a bonus that the owners of the farm were the nicest French people we met - friendly, passionate and willing to drive us around in a horse and cart.
