    Wow simpl,y gorgeous apartment how lovely and quaint. I Love to set a beautiful table afterall we eat with our eyes first. All the wonderful markets,. Patisseries, and boulangeries offering so many tasty treats to try how fun a feast for the tastebuds. I love a meal at a restaurant too wig my sweetheart but I also love the markets and picking out fresh ingredients to make a delicious meal to,share with those I love too. The ambience how cute with the French music how lovely these are the moments you cherish.

    What a gorgeous place, tastefully decorated. What an experience, right? With so much to see and do — and eat– who would need to cook? I’d be visiting every single bakery in town, exploring all the wonderful food they have and bringing notes to try my faves at home.

    Thanks for sharing your trip with us — and make us dream. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    I, too. loved the place you stayed and how you mix with the locals. So much nicer than going on planned tours. From what I can gather from friends who take these tours, they also take you to the touristy shops. Not my cup of tea. I like to mix and blend in with locals on all our travels.

    Airbnb, will, in time be making changes, There have been so many complaints from hotels, restaurants, and other places in the tourist business about them. It is being looked into and rules are beginning to take shape. Personally I think it is a great idea. Several homes in our town do it, and just recently City Hall had a meeting regarding them. Changes are in the works at least in the USA.

    My son swears by Air BnB and we have yet to use it but by the looks of your accommodation it’s a winner! Such a beautiful place to spend time in, I love it. I’m afraid we are used to grey skies here and sunshine is a big bonus for us. I love all your photos and recipes from your trip this visit. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your trip xoxo

    Hi Chris, your apartment is wonderful, we have never used airbnb but have used vrbo (vacation rental by owner) and were very pleased. Will have to check it out.

    My daughter and I are planning a trip to England and France Fall 2016. (I was in both countries this past Spring with my Granddaughter) We are planning on staying in Airbnb the entire time. I’ve heard both good and not-so-good reviews. However, this year while in both countries, the hotels were awful. We’re very excited to stay in homes where we can cook our own meals if we choose to. I also like that most homes are in near the best sites! Well done Chris. As usual, stunning photos!

    Chris, your vacation apartment is wonderful. I could live there full-time. I would struggle with London’s gloomy skies on a full-time basis, yet I would still like to go there too. I think I would welcome the rain.

    Oh wow! What a charming home! It must have been so hard to leave Provence and must have been so costly as well! Wow , a taste of heaven I must say,

    Unfortunately I don’t share your enthusiasm for Airb&b. They do not pay taxes, have health inspections, safety measures , insurance or follow codes. There are also many situations that you read about in the paper, where there were wild parties or danger to people. Please post this as the public has a right to hear both sides.

      Thanks Barb,it’s always good to look at all aspects of an organization. This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was wonderful. I’m sure, as in everything, people have had negative experiences in Airbnbs. We have had also unpleasant and difficult situations in hotels. I think you have to be careful and wary in everything you do. Thanks for your input.

    I’ve enjoyed your posts and lovely pictures so much. Highlights of a few things I loved: the joy you find in your four rays of sunshine; your smile when you bought the flowers at the market and then seeing them later on your table; imagining biking through Provence; your cooking class; the extraordinary market…etc., I could go on. So happy for you, couldn’t happen for a nicer couple.
