It was the summer of 2000 and I fell head over heels in love - with Provence! I had never visited a place so beautiful, so sunny and so picturesque and I decided that, one day, I would make my home here. I didn't speak a word of French then, but that didn't hold me back! I like adventures, so I decided to take the plunge. And I haven't looked back! I purchased a villa in the medieval market town of Lorgues - which is situated in the heart of Provence - close to the sea, the mountains and surrounded by famous vineyards of the Cote de Provence. I named the house "Villa Soleil Rose" for the golden, pink hue that fills the house as the Sun rises each morning and bids us "bonjour"! For 18 years, I have welcomed family and friends to this amazing part of the world. I became a "native" - I learnt French, I learnt to cook (which has become my passion!) and I learnt everything I could about the "terroir" and the delicious local wine and cuisine. And like any proud native, I wanted to share my love of Provence with my family and friends. So we did wine tastings at my favorite vineyards, enjoyed gastronomical meals at Michelin-star restaurants, explored picturesque medieval hilltop villages, hiked in the Gorge du Verdon, relaxed on the sun-kissed beaches of the French Riviera, swam in the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea and, most of all, enjoyed each other's company as we cooked and dined together at home - by the pool or on the two terraces overlooking the garden. This is my Provencal life - an adventure fulfilled! I hope to share it with all of you and bid you welcome to Villa Soleil Rose! A très bientôt!
