Luberon - Week two

During the second week of August, we visited Arles, famous for its Roman Amphitheatre.
They organise Gladiator combats based on archaeological searches
(nothing to do with american epic films...) and the fighters have turned professionals
to live fully their passion for history.

I love the contrast between my daughter's fair complexion and blond hair
and this mediterranean sun tanned Gladiator !

 Outside the amphitheatre with my personal Gladiator...

 A visit around the harbour of Toulon

 Lourmarin, labelled as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France

 and its famous Friday market
 Plaited Garlic, Olive oil and Fruit jam

  Provencal bread called Fougasse filled with either vegetables, goat cheese or anchovy.

All flavours for "saucisson" lovers : Savoie wine, nuts, herbs, goat cheese, thyme,
duck with green pepper and lavender...

  2. I have a weakness for hilltowns. I've dreamt of going to Arles for years now. I'm going to bookmark these two posts because I'll know where to go when we head back to South of France. I love the startling contrast between your daughter and the "gladiator"!

  3. Great pictures. Your kids are so cute. Your youngest and little boy really look like you. I really love the market pictures too. The saucisson picture made me go have a look in my fridge!
