A Food Lover’s Guide to Paris

Hideaway at La Bastide de Marie in Menerbes, France (Provence)

France, The Journey | August 15, 2016 | By

Today we explore a little village in the Provence region of France, Menerbes. Its number four of five for the honeymoon diaries (Check some of these: for other adventure stories here, here, and here )Before going to the South of France for myself I had no clue that the entire South Easter coast (including Nice and Cannes) is considered Provence! So when my husband and I kept telling people we were heading to Provence next we would get wide eyed stares followed by “yes, but where?”. Finally someone explained to us that the whole area was considered the Provence region and the little town we were specifically staying in is how we should address our location. Lesson Learned! Menerbes was a little town about 2 hours west and a little north from Nice. It is considered part of the Luberon Valley made up of other beautiful towns and villages like Rousillion, Isle Sur la Sorgue, Gordes, etc.
