0 Reviews
Proud villas, farms surrounded by cultivated land, simple stone buildings in the middle of vineyards, and fields of lavender: that’s Provence, and these homes, photographed by Maisons Côte Sud magazine, showcase the region’s beauty and style. On display are brick tiles that stay cool in the summer, big clay pots displayed on either side of a door, mosaic stone paving, sunny kitchens full of yellow and green earthenware, comfortable bedrooms with cotton furnishings, wrought-iron banisters, gates, and window grills, and courtyards bathed in dappled light. It all adds up to a combination of heritage and stylishness unlike any other.
