On Monday we rented a car and drove down to Provence. The drive wasn't too bad at all, and took about four hours. I don't think I'll ever tire of seeing road signs pointing to exotic places.
Our journey down was definitely made easier by this fabulous rest area we stopped at along the way. I guess that's the benefit to all the toll roads!
We've been staying in a converted barn (a Gîte, actually) in a small village called Sablet, not too far from Vaison la Romaine.
Sablet is beautiful and looks exactly like a Provencal village out of a coffee table book. It's been a wonderful place to stay, and not too far from most of the places we've visited. We're headed home this morning sometime, so there will be much more on our time in Provence to come.
