After a smooth EasyJet flight from Manchester to Marseille (make sure to book seats with priority boarding), we picked up our rental car at Europcar and managed to quickly set off for what would be four days of Provencal bliss.

Le Jardin dans les Vignes offers an extraordinary setting from where to enjoy the sound of crickets and a beautiful sunset while savouring the 'Retour du Marché' menu accompanied by the omnipresent and very palatable Aureto wines. On our last evening we opted for the ‘Aureto Soirée Rose’, where guests were encouraged to also reflect the pink theme by dressing accordingly, if possible. Live piano music set the perfect background for what would be a very enjoyable and memorable evening combining succulent cuisine - with foods matching the pink theme - and rosé wines - of course - in a picture perfect surrounding.

|This view makes enjoying a meal rather easy|
On cooler (or wetter) days, dinner and breakfasts are taking place in the aptly named Le Bistrot, while on mild and warm days breakfast is had in the bistro's outdoor area.
