Not everyone who goes to Provence makes a stop in Orange, France. I’m not sure why because it’s not that far from popular places like Avignon and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Plus, it’s an extraordinary place to visit. I’ve been to visit Orange, France three times now. For three different reasons. The […]
A visit to Provence – one of the most visited areas in France – is the second post in the Barefoot Blogger travel series by Nancy McGee of Absolutely Southern France. Nancy has lived in the south of France for over 30 years so, I’d say, she knows her way […]
