A stroll through the village

The beautiful little village of La Roche-sur-le-Buis is nestled in the hillside above a valley in Provence which is surrounded by rocky outcrops in all directions.

I thought you might like to join us on a stroll around the village and have a look at some of the homes on a beautiful spring day.

The first photo is where we are staying and the second is our lovely neighbours place.

  1. Hi Kerry & Jim, I was curious as to why I hadn’t seen anything come through from your holiday blog, so went in to send the “follow” again and saw that I had put 1 thing wrong in my email address………
    I am so happy now that I will be able to see your wonderful holiday snaps and keep in touch with what you are up to…. Just looking at images today I am sooooooo jealous, wishing you both much love and happiness
    Denise and of course Alan xxx

    • Lovely to hear from you! Trust all is good in Margaret River.

  2. What a lovely, peaceful little village – great photos Jim and Kerry. Yep, things not looking too good for the Eagles at the moment, they really need to turn things around very soon!

    • The village only has about 200 residents (I think), so it really is very quite and peaceful.

  3. Hi Jim & Kerry

    Just love your blog. They have certainly made use of the natural resources in this village. We are considering doing a similar thing for three months in France so will love to catch up with you upon your return for all the tips. We are considering the Loire Valley in France.

    Our third granddaughter arrived last week. Very exciting times for the Edens and hence this year is a stay in Aussie year (maybe a week or two in Fiji with the kids) but next year overseas again. After having 9 weeks touring Europe last year we definitely have the bug and Di finishes work in June so there will be no excuse.

    Keep it coming

    Love

    Dave & Di x

    • Congrats on No. 3 and we look forward to catching up with you when we get home.

  4. wow i am happy it is you guys guys drive over there and not me i would be so scared i would drive over the edge lol love the pictures. We will have to facetime you over the next day or two

    • Yes, some of the roads are pretty scary.

  5. Beautiful spot! Looks like you own the whole village with no one else in sight!!! Rob x

    • Its a very quite little spot. They must have been at work. We love hearing the kids playing in the streets in the afternoon.

Eagles look really poor, down three one now,its a must win game this weekend against Port Power who haven’t lost a game. Jammie ,played a good first qtr again, then subbed off prior to the last, wasn’t the worst on ground, just needs to be more consistent now, this wil come soon with more game time nd maturing at this level
