Traveling to Provence
(Mt. Airy, MD, USA)
I have been enamoured with Provence since reading A Year In Provence. Coming from New England and now living in a small town in Maryland, I'm familiar with and very fond of the quirky characters, their strong opinions, and the unique habits that the people in the book seem to share. I want to go to Provence for my 50th birthday with my sister who shares my love of wine and food. Someone recommended we rent a chateau. What do you recommend for those who want to experience the lifestyle, the markets, and the food? You should probably know that neither of us have been to Europe and I am currently learning French for the trip.
