Provençal Kitchen and Potager

In Provence early last spring, this was our breakfast kitchen and little herb garden (le potager)... utterly charming, why would you want to be anywhere else? The cafes au lait, les croissants, le pain, le beurre, les yaourts et ses fruits...  everything tastes better in this little Provençal kitchen.

Why not come with us this year and see for yourself :)  You will come to love this little spot as much as I do. Join me on a Chic Provence Design Tour Printemps 2013.

The photos are grainy... I used my iPhone in low light.. but hope you will at least be able to absorb some of the charm of this cozy and delightful cuisine du petit dejeuner.

this magnificent sideboard was likely a butchers block originally... today it serves
to hold our breakfast and look completely charming!

I love the tall windows looking out onto one of the covered terrasses and 
le piscine... don't you love an antique crystal chandelier over 
your breakfast table?

stunning la Calanche stove, range hood, blackened
backsplash, wooden furniture used in the kitchen
and tomettes on the floor create wonderful
Provençal ambiance

of course no French kitchen is complete
without le coq... symbol of France!

hammered zinc tabletop, wrought iron and again
those wonderful tommettes

Steven and Lisa shop the bakeries early morning and bring us
the freshest breads and croissants imaginable!

a cheerful sight to awaken the senses

steps away on the other side of the villa is the kitchen garden... le potager...

and a clothesline for drying linens in the sunshine...

early spring in le potager and we have a little work to do!

or maybe we will sit on the bench and enjoy the views....

 le potager is beginning to shape up!

we might have a little lunch next to le potager 

or stop for a chat and un cafe next to le potager 

either way, it's a wonderful little spot for that perfect Provençal moment!

pretty geraniums are coming back to life

Provençal countryside
