Beautiful limestone villages speckled with cheerful pastel-colored shutters and doors and decorated with bright flowers. The way the light shines all day long casting a soft, filtered glow on the countryside and illuminating the hilltop towns in the distance. The bright blue sky, the constant, refreshing breeze, the warm sunshine (300 days a year), and the effortless style. The people are warm and inviting and the cuisine is fresh, seasonal, simple and delicious. The colorful markets are set up throughout the labyrinth of streets and are packed to the brim with tempting, local specialties.
