  1. Provence looks magical! I love each and every photo of yours. It’s my dream to get myself photographed in the midst of a lavender and a sunflower field. That would be awesome. 🙂

    Hi Kiersten,

    My sister and I will be travelling to France in the second week of August and would like to visit Provence. We would also like to visit the lavender distilleries in Sault.
    Looking for your advice on best modes of public transportation to get around the villages/towns. Neither me nor my sister are confident about driving through Provence since we have never tried right hand drive before and the hair pin bends may be a challenge.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Nikita,

      Oooooh that’ll be so dreamy! Just a heads up that a number of locals might be on vacation around that time, but I would think you’d still find some places open. You might want to check if there are specific places just to confirm as many locals take their holiday in August. So I initially took the train (for the big trek from Paris) and then for part of the trip I rented a car and drove myself around, but I completely understand about not being confident with those roads. The train system is pretty darn good in France, though I’m not sure about little villages—look into this and see if it would match up with your itinerary.
