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...............
