Dear Ed­itrix,

I was pleased to find the first edi­tion of your mag­a­zine in Moruya Newsagency to­day and de­lighted to see a pic­ture of Lour­marin. When I am in that part of the world I go to Cadenet mar­ket on Mon­day morn­ings then drive the ten or so kilo­me­tres to Lour­marin. I park fac­ing the chateau and walk back to have lunch at Café Gaby and be amused at the pass­ing pa­rade. A high­light can be a Fer­rari emerg­ing from the lane on the right and start­ing to drive the wrong way up the lane. The lo­cals’ plea­sure is height­ened if the Fer­rari has D, UK, B or I plates on the back. I can rec­om­mend a visit to Lour­marin.

Eric Wise­man, Moruya, NSW Hi Deb­bie,

I can’t be­lieve this! I was in Saint-Paul de Vence two weeks ago. My hus­band, my­self and my spe­cial needs daugh­ter were on a tour. We were al­most worn out with the pace of the tour and I was dis­ap­pointed that we had not seen the things I had read so much about ... then we ar­rived at Saint-Paul de Vence! My daugh­ter and I were over­whelmed!

We sat down at the Place de la Grande Fon­taine. We couldn’t move it was so peace­ful; it seemed to cast a spell over us. It was early in the morn­ing and the shop­keep­ers were open­ing their stores, then they all pro­ceeded to greet their fel­low shop­keep­ers. No noise, so quiet. It was like a dream. It was the high­light of our trip. All the bad mo­ments were for­got­ten, I will never for­get it. I have the photo on the bot­tom of page 67 as my screen saver. Thanks for a won­der­ful mag­a­zine. You have inspired me to re­turn to Provence; not sure how we will get our daugh­ter there but I’ll work it out.

Thank you,

Lynne Mar­shall
