Yep, I live near it and it's teeny teeny tiny. Also, there's a Moscow in Canada (not too far off from Perth either, actually). It's also teeny teeny tiny. I think it only has one intersection with traffic lights and it's close enough to a larger town that you barely notice it's a town by itself at all.

Surprised Provence has such a low percent-score. Thought it was much better known, a bit like Tuscany in Italy. There's even "Herbs de Provence", a mix of herbs that's used in cooking.
