Little Lake Town, Provence
If my previous posts haven’t quite sold you on Provence, this one might just do the trick.
Far away from the crowds and hustle and bustle you’ll find Esparron de Verdon.
A tiny little village perched on the edge of a bright blue lake.
The water’s warm, there are more pedalos to hire than you can shake a stick at, and the streets are made for aimless wandering.
The local chateau, guarded by a soppy golden lab, is actually a BnB.
There’s a little church, a couple of cafes and one of the best (and friendliest) French bakers you could hope for.
Sunnies (on sale!)

It’s well worth hiring a boat to take out on the lake.
Find your own little cove and make yourself at home!
You might even spot my dream house…
Though getting back into the boat is an adventure in itself!
(Especially if your dad kicks you back in the second you make it up.)
Scoundrel is an underused term, but perfectly fitting here.
There’s a gorgeous little campsite on the shore, mostly hidden beneath the trees.
The perfect place for anyone who longs to relive Swallows & Amazons.
For breakfast you can buy pain au chocolat from the baker, careful though, they’ll be hot from the oven and perfectly buttery.
At lunch time he’ll make you sandwiches.
And he’ll treat you to pudding, too.
Oh, there’s a local unicorn too.
What more could you ask for from a little French town?
