A Week In Provence

igorm Sep 17, 2010 07:32 AM

We spent a wonderful week in Provence, staying in St. Remy and exploring from there. Highlights noted: The restaurant in St. Remy we enjoyed was Exedra. Out of the center but on the way to Glanum. The visit to Cassis on the coast was picturesque. The market in Isle-sur- la- sorgue was a treat. The lunch at Bistro du Paradu was memorable. The three days of Mistral winds was an experience. The intensity of colors in provence were as noted by artists and photographers. Enjoyed Provence very much. Look at website for Mas Du Cornud - exceptional hosts! Also, the special lunch we had at Chez Serge in Carpentras; truffle heaven!

        My recommendations for dinner in the area:
        St Rémy: Bistrot Découverte, l'Assiette de Marie
        le Paradou: Bistrot du Paradou
        Maussanne-les-Alpilles: La Place
        Mollégès: Mas de Capoun
        Orgon: Auberge du Parc
        Don't miss the Wednesday morning market in St Rémy
