Since this is the time of year when one should really talk about lavenders, I thought I would take you to some place off the beaten tracks.

The Baronnies are the first hills that we encounter when leaving Vaison-la-Romaine towards the Alps, it is Provence’s best kept secret. A nirvana for cyclists, it is also Instagram’s paradise… just see for your self!

Other typical products of Provence’s generous nature, olive and apricot trees grow here too

St Jalle, Drome Provençale

All this beauty within a bike ride from home 😉
