The Furlongs are interested in art. This Furlong loves it because it makes her think and feel stuff. Mr Furlong is interested because he frames pictures. And we both ran an Art Gallery.
Art supported us.
So Tourrettes Var is a perched village in Provence that we visited last year We have just visited it again. It has no shops – no supermarkets – no news agents – no tobacconists – no tourist junk – no clothes or shoe shops – no nothing – NO shops!
If you need shops, you have to walk to Fayence, just around the corner, only a short distance, to buy your stuff. There are lots of shops in Fayence and a wonderful market on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. And hotels.
But Tourrettes has no shops! No hotels.
It has treasure!
Tourrettes has artist’s ateliers. Artists workshops. Tourrettes is full of wondrous stuff to see if you love art and to buy – if you have money! And a way to ship your purchases home.
The Last Furlong blog is going to talk about the artists that work in Tourrettes…
