Complementing the wild thyme, rosemary and innumerable flowers that grow lawlessly in Provence are uninterrupted rows of grape vines. The vines are certainly characteristic of many other regions of France, but for me, there is magic in the Provençal countryside.  A short drive from Aix-en-Provence to the north, intermingling with picturesque Provençal villages, you will find these parallel lines of paradise.  Although I personally don’t drink wine anymore (or any alcohol), I still adore the whimsical “farniente” invitation of the vineyards.
