autumn riviera

by greenrabbitdesigns


We really only decided just a few weeks back that we would return to the south of France for a little autumn break. We always go somewhere, usually at the end of August, beginning of September when we have both our birthdays and our wedding anniversary but this year we thought we would leave it a little later and go back to the Riviera. As we have never been at this time of year before we weren’t quite sure what to expect weatherwise but we needn’t have worried, it was beautiful!

I love everything about this place…..the sunshine…..the scenery…..the beaches…..the flora and fauna…..the people…..the produce…..the villages, towns and cities…..the palm trees…..and the peeling duck egg blue painted shutters!

This is a very picture heavy post so be warned but I hope you enjoy a little of what we enjoyed last week!

Glad you had a good time. I love the mosaic of shutters and peeling paint. I am sure that the time away enjoying the sunshine will have set you both up for the short days and early evenings of winter now.

It looks beautiful Vivienne. So glad you had wonderful weather. Love all the photos, especially the night & day combo.
No doubt you’ll be wanting to book yourself another holiday in the sun now that Winter seems to have got its feet under the door.
Glad to have you back in the blogging World again.

A gorgeous break. It doesn’t have much in common with around here apart from the peeling paint! I am glad you had a nice time and I can see why! x

It was still summer there! How lovely for you! Blue sky, sunshine, sand, flowers………all looks wonderful!
Welcome back Vivienne, glad you had a great time, but what a shame to have to come back to this colder, wetter weather.

Welcome back Vivienne, how lovely, it still looks like the middle of summer over there although I guess the days were a bit shorter now. I can tell you really like it, it’s great to find a place that you love everything about, even down to the duck egg blue! Very nice pictures again. 🙂 xx

Hello Vivienne,

I must admit I was secretly crossing my fingers for your weatherwise and I can see from your beautiful pictures that you had the glorious blue skies and sunshine you deserved!

I really like your photo of the cricket 🙂

Hi Vivienne, It ALL looks amazing. My favorites are the flowers, fruits and open air markets. I’m so glad you and Mr B could travel this autumn.
Happy THursday,

What a fabulous looking break! I’m getting a little jaunt to Yorkshire (with the boys on the train, as M is away) next week……I expect a little more rain than your lovely France photos show. Still, a break is aways nice, no matter the weather. Bx
