Le Lavandin in Provence

My blog friend AnNicole (Our Suburban Cottage) just told me about Le Lavandin, this picturesque Bed & Breakfast in Provence, and I think I'm in love. What a beautiful place to spend a holiday!


Even though the B&B isn't on the water, I think the rooms have a light, beachy feel to them. Don't you?


There are workshops held there, too, if you want to learn more about things like cooking and creative writing. If painting is your thing, the surrounding olive groves and lavender fields would be a perfect place to get inspired!



There's a terrace off every room. Ahhhh. I would be taking my afternoon naps right here:


Excuse me while I book my plane ticket to Provence. See you when I get back (from my fantasy)!

To see more photos of Le Lavandin and to read about the workshops they have scheduled, check out their website.

My mind has been on France a lot lately. I spent an afternoon searching through French real estate online and wrote about this 150-year old stone cottage yesterday on my other blog.

  12. First, I had no idea you had another blog! You've been holding out on me...or I've had my head in the sand...most likely the latter.

    Isn't her B&B amazing?! Thanks for featuring it. I'll have to send her an email and let her know.

  14. Oh my heart... I am in love as well...take me there now!!
    Thanks for visiting my blog...yes that story was unreal. My Dad was out of his mind angry and I hid under the covers while the nurse held my hand. You never realize how much something affects you until you can recall every possible detail.
    Take care

  18. Ooooh, LOVE the lavender room!! I'd be very happy stretched out on that low purple sectional, reading a book and enjoying the breeze :-)

    I'll keep you posted on my dining room progress. One thing for sure, is -- it's going to have PURPLE!! :-) And come to think of it, this lavender room could be another good inspiration picture.... :-)
