Earlier in October I had the pleasure of spending 5 days in Provence. I was there with writer Carla Woter, creating a story for DOGS Magazine, on traveling with your Dog in the Luberon.
Carla and I got to stay at some beautiful properties and meet some wonderful people and their beloved dogs. We discovered stunning walks, delicious cafés and restaurants, quaint villages and traditional markets, every place dog friendly.... like most places in France, the Luberon is a perfect place to live or travel with your four legged best friend.
The highlight of my trip was meeting English Author Peter Mayle. Peter is a true dog lover with a kind gentle soul, his dog Alfred is ADORABLE, I wanted to bring him home with me.
