Having lived nearly thirty years and worked in the City in London, I now enjoy a half of the year in my house in Provence/Luberon in South France. The region is known with wonderful nature surrounded with various orchards, vineyard, olive orchards and many charming old villages. You can go to 'Marche' in those villages and taste local products, visit vineyard for wine tasting, you can even visit bigger towns such as Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Orange, etc to enjoy and appreciate well kept cultural and historical sites, or you can choose to spend time just walking through and onto mountains and hills. Life style in Luberon is relaxed with enjoying good food and wine!
