Provence is enchanting

Provence is enchanting year round. From the poppy fields of spring to the blooming lavender of summer, the vibrant colours of autumn and the serenity of winter, photographer Helen Leather captures the charms of Provence through the seasons and shares her favourite places…

The Four Seasons of Provence SPRING The beautiful village of Murs is close to gorgeous Gordes and ravishing Roussillon. In spring the valleys around Murs are filled with flowers. Take a peek through the gates of the privatelyowned Castle of Murs, built between the 12th and 6th century. And from the town, enjoy one of the numerous hiking trails, and in summer you will find many cyclists stopping for lunch at the charming Hotel le Crillon. The village of Goult is authentic and charming with a bustling center where you’ll find lots of restaurants and shops. After lunch, walk to the top of the village where you will find a fabulous old windmill. Tarascon (left) is a vibrant, colourful little town, close to Saint-Remy-de-Provence, it’s well worth a detour and has a beautifully preserved castle overlooking the River Rhone.
