Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge: F is for Fox Amphoux

Today on Frizztexts A to Z challenge, we are on the letter F

F could be for …Florence, Fontevraud, Fontfroide, Forcalquier, Freyburg, to name a few from my travels in Europe.

However, I have chosen the hamlet of Fox Amphoux, in the Var department of Provence, a very attractive little place. Stopped off there on the way back from Forcalquier, which we had visited for the market.

I found Fox Amphoux most photogenic, and hardly a soul about the place in the late afternoon.


Street in Fox Amphoux

A picturesque little corner:

The church clock tells us it was 4.15….

Hope you enjoyed this snapshot of a place beginning with F. More over at Frizz’s blog here.



  1. fun, fascinating and not an ounce of frou-frou

  2. looks very peaceful, all the natives having a zzzz…?

  3. You find the such fascinating off-the-beaten-track spots for us, Sue.

    • I have always loved maps,reading up about places and planning holidays… the more so for finding interesting places to photograph.. It’s great to be able to share some of these. Perhaps I might inspire a few people to visit some of these places, who knows?

      • We have been fortunate enough to have driven around quite a bit of Europe and the freedom to explore freely is such a bonus. One of my favourites was the small village of St-Marsal in the foothills of the Pyrenees in Languedoc region. Moments you can’t plan for, they just come together and unfold – my kind of travel. I too scour the maps before going 🙂

      • I agree regarding having the freedom to explore, and the moments you can’t plan for…completely my kind of travel. Some of my best memories come from things unfolding…in France, Germany, Romania, Cuba to name a few…

  4. hi Sue,
    again your great intro style: “F could be for …Florence, Fontevraud, Fontfroide, Forcalquier, Freyburg…” – you remembered me, that I’ve been in Frankfurt.

  5. What a strange place name, Sue! Any idea where it came from?
    Looks rather nice 🙂

  6. A gorgeous place Sue. I love the first, with those ubiquitous blue shutters and the urn embedded in the wall.
