Mar 31, 2015  |   Contributor: Sean Hillen

Standing high above hazy hills with its dazzling ochre façade, vivid blue shutters and rows of vintage chestnut trees, Domaine de la Baume is a classic portrayal of a Provençal postcard. In many ways, reality outshines images of this 99-acre, 18th century bourgeoisie demesne.
