France beckons - oh happy day!

In less than 2 weeks I will be winging my way to La Belle France once more for my next Picnics trips.  Once I step off the plane it's hard to wipe the smile of my face, it's one of my happy places!

 In the past I have started trips in Cassis, spending a couple of days in this idyllic part of southern Provence.  Wine, turquoise waters, sunshine and bobbing boats galore, it's a great little spot.

There is a wonderful boutique hotel which directly overlooks the pretty harbour. A glass of perfectly chilled rosé and soft melting cheeses on the balcony while watching the passing parade is pretty hard to beat.

The local drop has the soft blush of a babies bottom.  It's so crisp and delightful you could drink the bottle with a straw!

 As I said, one of my happy places...............


  1. I can't believe you are in Cassis . Are you sleeping at chez Nino . I love the view there

  2. Yes Mélanie, that's where we stay. It's the most perfect spot, love it.

    Thanks for taking the time to post a comment you are officially the first one!!!
