Return to Sablet

We return to Provence this week and to our beloved house in Sablet. Despite the chaos at our house in California and maybe somewhat because of it and the escape it will provide, I can't wait to get there.

I am particularly excited because we will (as usual) have guests with us for part of the time. As faithful readers of this blog know, I am a co-owner of a little French bistro in Occidental California called Bistro Des Copains.

In addition to the usual visits from our beloved cousins, we will also have three of our front of the house staff visit. I look forward to visiting new places and to showing them some of the treasures of Provence.

Allison Schermerhorn (pictured on the left below) and her husband Adam left this morning from San Francisco. Before they get to Provence, they are going to Venice, Florence and the Cinque Terre.

Julia Kintzi (pictured on the right below) leaves tomorrow. Her daughter Lisi, also a part time front of the house employee at Bistro Des Copains is spending 6 months in Copenhagen Denmark. Before Julia gets to Provence, she is going to visit her daughter in Copenhagen and friends in Germany.

Kari Sante (pictured below) is already in Switzerland visiting friends. She will be the first to arrive in Provence.

I can't wait to say to them "bienvenue", welcome to our home in Provence. It will be a wonderful two weeks.


  1. We leave as you arrive. Dommage! The spring season has become more spectacular every day. - and, as you might guess, the streets of Vaison, especially today (market day) were already close to grid lock. You have chosen exactly the right time to be here.

  2. Nice to hear from you. It would be very nice for our paths to cross, hopefully during a future visit.

    We will be at the Vaison Market next Tuesday that is for sure. We can't wait.

    Safe travels as you leave.
