Photos from a week in the South of France
Market in Aix-en-Provence.
This newsletter is similar to the one from September 2010, in that it’s mostly photos of my recent week in the South of France. The base was La Cadière d’Azur, a picturesque village that sits on a hill with wonderful views of the countryside. La Cadière d’Azur as the name would suggest is on the Côte d'Azur aka the French Riviera. Some of the photos below are also from Provence.

This is the Calanque de Figuerolles as seem for the sea. A Calanque is a narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs. There are many Calanques between Marseille and Cassis.
This is part of the Sorgue River passing through Isle sur la Sorgue. If you ever visit Isle sur la Sorgue make sure to stop by Patisserie Leyris run by a Franco-American couple.

This is one of the many Pizza vans that you can find in most (if not all) areas of France now.

It seemed like every village or market had its Savon de Provence seller.
