My father's cousin and her husband live outside of Aix-en-Provence in a town called Éguilles. Barbara and Spencer graciously allowed us to stay at at their gorgeous Provençal home during our road trip.
Barbara and Spencer live what Kyle and I consider to be, the ideal life. They are Canadians living in France with diplomatic status. What everyone else can only experience on vacation, they experience on a daily basis - the Provençal food, the wine, the weather, the gorgeous home! We were seriously envious, especially because Éguilles is perfectly situated for day trips all over the region. In 45 minutes or less you can be in Marseille, Cassis, or the villages of the Luberon.
While Barbara was out of town, we were lucky enough to hang out with Spencer and their tennis ball-obsessed Golden Retriever, Charlie (seriously this dude is mental for tennis balls). A few photos of their home are below to give you a glimpse into life in the South of France.
