The village of Caromb

Near the gite' where we spent a week, was a lovely little town called Caromb.  Quiet and colorful with many fountains.

To think that this was the only means of getting water to the people years ago, just seems so beautiful.
Imagine the conversations around this fountain.

Beautifully constructed walls and bell towers.

And, of course, the colors and beauty of Provence.


  1. Hi Susan,
    I love your photos - wonderful the well, plurple shutter, bell tower - provence is a perfect dream -
    I wish you a nice time -
    best wishes - Ruth

  2. The colours of the stone and the shutters - so beautiful. One can try, but I don't think it's possible to recreate the look over here. The light's just not right.

  3. I love seeing these places through your eyes, they are much more interesting. Thanks so much for sharing with us all. Diane

  4. Don't you just love the shutters? I know I do. I didn't realize that they were for anything other than decoration and beauty until we were in Provence in July and found out that the shutters are for keeping out the oppressive summer heat during the day.

    Wish I could re-create some of the colors they use in Provence here at home. Somehow it doesn't seem to translate well.

  5. The fountains in Europe are wonderful. Wouldn't a book of them be marvelous? You've done such a great job with your photos, Susan.

  6. I love the water fountains and wells that you see all over Europe. So much beauty was put into everyday life back then.
