the hills

“provence is a country to which I am always returning, next week, next year, any day now, as soon as i can get on a train.”
– elizabeth david

many moons ago a little movie called “a good year” was on the telly. the first bits of russell crowe in the stock pit were not so alluring…but then appeared a plucky french girl named marion cotillard…and the heavenly images of a golden hillside town.
curious, i parked myself on my sofa and before you know it, i was whisked away to the stunning land of wine, lavender fields and pastis – provence, france.
by the end of the film, surprise surprise, i was hopelessly in love with provence {and marion cotillard}. and since then, i have been searching for any and every reason to plan a trip to this glorious place.
hooray, that time has arrived! lo and behold, our honeymoon hopes are around the mediterranean…and a side trip to the hillsides of crillon le brave, provence, would be a perfect part of itinerary 🙂
and the perfect hotel? the hotel crillon le brave, of course. tucked away in the hills, this gem has breathtaking views, divine food and an undeniably romantic atmosphere.
now i have to make the hubby-to-be fall in love with this idea as much as me…

wish me luck!
