It’s taken me three years to visit Menerbes… shameful I know, considering it is practically the epicentre of A Year in Provence. Now however I’m immensely pleased it’s taken me so long as it’s clear neither Dan or I would particularly like to live anywhere else in the Luberon. We only had half an hour to walk around so this a very quick post of my top five photos. Top: Light. Below: a gorgeous garden and fantastic type face. Colours –I should mention that Menerbes also has a couple of exquisite galleries with interesting, contemporary art – mainly paintings but prints too. This is such a nice change from the usual shite you find in these tourist villages. I had been (and still am) hoping to open a pop-up gallery but it is proving almost impossible to do as in London and hire a space without an intimate knowledge of French law and a mammoth amount of schmoosing (and l’argent). If I do ever manage it, Menerbes would be my number one spot.
