Sounds like a wonderful trip. We did a similar thing during the summer, although slightly northwest of Provence.
Rural France can really get rural sometimes. Have you managed to stay anywhere "exotic" during your travels?
Two places spring to mind from my holiday. The first was a small chateau near Macon, which drew us in with a hand painted sign on the road stating "B&B. Castle. Four Poster".
Naturally nosey, we found that it was a young English couple who had bought the dump at a very good price, and were doing it up a bit at a time.
We didn't get the four poster, as the couple's family was staying and so it was taken, but we spent the night in a brand new yurt, which we had to help kit out with cutlery and show them how to get the stove working.
Slept like a log.
In the morning I walked down to the boulangerie with the father in law, and discovered that we both went to the same school when we were kids, although he'd been there several years before me. Small world.
Ended up helping him train an old grapevine in througb a hole we'd made in a conservatory window, before cooking our own breakfast and departing.
The other place was a big old "belle epoque" house near Beaune that seemed to be the roosting place for every owl in middle France.
What with them and the honeymooning couple (either that or he was a viagra salesman) in the next room, we didn't get much kip.
Beaune is well worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood. Wine wine and more wine.
Oh, and here's a Provence write up website that may help people locate your comings and goings, Mame.
