One thing I love doing in the weeks before the summer holiday, is looking at my old holiday photos. Looking at all those wonderful places, the delicious foods, the fantastic weather just brings back so many happy memories and makes me so excited for my next adventures. I thought I’d share some of my holiday snaps of my last holiday in Francee, hopefully they’ll get you just as excited for more travels as I am!
I’ve been going to France during the summer holidays for as long as I can remember. Two years ago was the last time I was there, and we spent two weeks in a little town called Tavernes in the Provence, the south of France.
Of course we drove past some lavender fields, of which the smell was simply heavenly.
These photos were taken at the Lac de Sainte Croix at the Gorges. It was an enormous lake, and the water was just amazingly blue. It just looked so idyllic.
The next place we visited was Cotignac. Cotignac is a city full of fountains, cute little cafes and beautiful buildings. The town is located at the base of big cliffs, which of course we braved.
When in France, the best thing to do to cool down is go for a swim. And although we did have a pretty nice swimming pool at our house, we ventured on a two hour drive to take a dip in the Mediterranean. We found a nice, quiet bay in a seaside town called Sanary-Sur-Mer.
Look who joined us while snorkling!
One thing I absolutely adore about France are all of the different Provence markets. I love all of the different typical local products they sell like the lavender, the wines, all the different produce and of course the food! Croissants, baguettes, fresh fish and cheeses, they have everything and somehow everything tastes better there.
Another place for which we decided to take a long drive was Aix en Provence. A beautiful, big city which some people compare to Saint Tropez. Lots of gorgeous buildings and cute little shops.
And, as you can see, the food was amazing!
The final place we visited on our trip was Sillans la Cascade, and I came here on a mission. I’d read that there were huge waterfalls in this area, and that they led to the most beautiful, lagoon-like river. Well, I found the waterfalls, but I was way more inpressed by the bright blue river I found at the bottom of those waterfalls. It was as if I was had just walked straight into one of those travel-agency posters of which you know the photo was too good to be true. People were even swimming, which I found admirable since the water was literally ice cold. But I didn’t care, I just climbed up a tree and enjoyed the incredible nature around me. It was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.
And that concludes my trip to France. I hope you have enjoyed reading it, and let me know what your favourite holiday destination is!
