Haute Provence

In July this year, L and I were invited by the Ds to their lovely hilltop summer home in Seillans. It was a very good weekend, experiencing how (some) French families spend their long summers. 

Before meeting with Mr. D early in the afternoon on a Saturday, L and I took a short trip from the Nice airport to the medieval town of Eze, with picture perfect, "Wow!" inducing views of the Cote d'Azur.

An hour from Nice was the D summer home. We had this view from the guest house, and olive trees and cicadas abounded.

The town of Seillans was charming as well. 

After two very restful days, L and I had to fly back via Nice. We took some time walking around there too.
