Since yesterday I am back from my holidays in the Provence. I stayed with my friends who live there in Ollioules.
Ollioules is a charming little old town dating from the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries and has about 13.000 inhabitants.
Olives, citrus (lemon and orange), fruits and vegetables, are cultivated here, but also saffron, and capers.
In the nineteenth century a new period of prosperity appears with growing flowers. At a time Ollioules was considered as the capital of the flowers. With the arrival of the railway during the Second Empire, the flowers are shipped throughout Europe.
My holiday home and the good bye drink on the terrace
A walk through the narrow streets with cobbled stones.
Two sea breams as last supper ! It was delicious.
