From Avignon to Martiel

From Provence we drove to Martiel, France in the Auvergne department.  It's about a 4.5 hour drive from Oppede in Provence...if you don't get lost along the way...which always seems to happen.
Martiel is a tiny hamlet....quaint and wonderful.  We are staying in a B&B here.

We started our day at a vide grenier...which means..."to clean out your attic".  Wonderful treasures to discover and great prices. 

Then we went on to Saint Antonin Noble Val   one of the "beautiful villages of France"

It was their "market day" and the shopping was wonderful...from cheese to olives to clothing to baskets....abundance!

and a picnic by the river....cheese, bread, tomatoes, salami, and raspberries.Tomorrow, the caverns.....
