Giraffes on the Cours Mirabeau!

Spotted (literally!) marching up and down the Cours Mirabeau in Aix en Provence.  An art installation with a difference!

Winning Saturday in Toulon

Fans were out in force for the Heineken Cup rugby game in Toulon. Special lunch menus in the restaurants around the port and a packed stadium in the sunshine.

And a great result for Toulon!  Through to the quarter finals!

Sunny Sunday in Cassis

January, sunshine, cobalt blue skies, boats bobbing in the harbour, the seagull Christmas lights hanging around the bay, and what seems like the whole of southern Provence out for lunch, strolling the water front and sitting on the beach - even one or two hardy people swimming in the Med.  Where else could it be but a sunny Sunday in Cassis.

Truffle lunch

What do the market crowds need more than anything else after the hard work perusing the stalls? Yes they are all heading to the stall in the corner for, of course, a truffle omelette.  Cooked to order and with a glass of local red, what could be better on a sunny lunch time at the Truffle market in Menerbes?

Truffle hunters out in force!

The annual Truffle market in Menerbes draws an enthusiastic crowd every year.  Great ambience in this lovely old village, excellent quality truffles from which to select, truffle oils, and even truffle oaks for growing your own.
