Carte Postale à la Provençale

For those of you who follow @enfantsterriblesmag on Instagram it is no secret that we are spending our Summer holiday in the South of France. Actually both Céline and I are down here, but in two different cities. We are in Claviers, a small village on a mountainside in Provence. My in-laws are the lucky owners of a magnificent old house in the mountains and every year they invite us down here for some family time (aren't we the spoiled brats!?).

So basically we come here every Summer and spend a few weeks taking in the splendour of this beautiful region in the South of France. We worked quite hard this year, so we were very much looking forward to some family time in Claviers, slowing down and letting the nature into our hearts. The kids absolutely love it here! We have almost all our meals outdoors on the rooftop balcony or in the garden under the wine pergola.

The fruits and vegetables seem to have soaked so much more flavor and sunshine into them and going to the markets here is a dream come true for this rainbowloving girl:-)

I wanted to share a few snaps from our holiday with a little special postcard from our vie à la Provençale. We went up into the mountains yeasterday and visited this magical placed called Plateau de Valensole. Lavernderfields and sunflowers for days. We had some tough luck and ran into a giant thunderstorm when we finally got there - but I did manage to capture these images before hell broke loose.

 Hope you are enjoying your Summer somewhere that makes you feel happy and at ease too.

Happy Summer<3


And as something entirely new - here's a video from our visit to the Lavender fields of Plateau de Valensole. My sweet hubby filmed it all on his cellphone and edited this beautiful little film especially for you and me - now isn't that something? I wish we could have taped the smell too - because it was absolutely heavenly!
