About Me

Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!


Heaven is in Belgium

Street Views in Provence, Crestet

Over the years, on the many walks through small villages in Provence I took photos of street views. Some of the houses, windows and doors are beautifully decorated with flowers and plants, and I can never get past them without taking pictures.
Over the next couple of weeks, this is what I intend to share on Thursdays ....

I'm taking you to Crestet today, a very small medieval village not far from Vaison-La-Romaine.
Click this link to read more about it.

Past the fig tree ...

Just look at this breathtaking scenery!

This is the valley of the Ouvèze.

This is the Church of St Sauveur, originally from the 11th century, and rebuilt in 1844.
Come back next week to see more photos of this beautiful village.

Oh I meant to tell you, your header picture is wonderful. I am drawn to those hands. They look like they have many stories to tell.

Wow, how beautiful! I would love to visit there and just soak up the beauty.

Beautiful and I found it interesting that, after being ransacked and falling into disrepair, the stones of the castle were used by Crestet residents to build their own houses.

I think I want to go and live in one of those little villages to savour the peace and quiet.

Gosh, the view, the stone work, the sky. I could certainly see myself linger there for a long time taking it all in!
