When I say cicadas and lavender, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? That's right, the Provence! A poetic region in the South of France and a getaway for many lucky ones in summer. With its wild nature and idyllic landscapes, it is a haven of serenity. While at the same time, the many picturesque villages scattered across the region offer plenty of options for discovery. It can be daunting to approach a region this big, so in true 'Gerrit and the City' fashion, I made up a few day trips for you. Enjoy!
