Trip Report Being in Paris, Provence and the Riviera

Jump to last reply

We returned to Paris, Provence and the Riviera in the spring. Since we have been to Paris before, we were able to enjoy just being there--walking in the Notre dame area, the Marais, going to the Musee d'Orsay but mostly not having to do anything in particular. We went to the Restaurant Reed and had a great dinner there, also Au Bougnot which was near our hotel and had a nice experience there as well.
We took the train to Avignon and loved the restaurant La Fourchette. We stayed at an interesting B&B called LaBannistere. We also enjoyed our dinner at le Brigadier du Theatre.
We rented a car and drove to the Camargue. We loved walking around, seeing the wildlife, the flamingoes despite the wind. We then ended up in St Remy, stayed at the castellet des alpilles. Our dinner at the Bistrot Decouverte was wonderful. Unfortunately, we had rain as we drove around Provence so we didn't get to see the sun lighting the mountains. We visited many towns but sometimes we didn't get to walk around as much as we would have liked.
We stayed at the les Mas des Romarins in Gordes and had a fantastic dinner in their restaurant and could view the scenery from our table.
We worked our way to Aix en Provence. We dined at a little place called Ze Bistro and were pleasantly surprised as to how much we enjoyed it. The waiter was also the chef and it was a unique experience.
We then headed off to St,. Tropez and Nice, having some nice experiences there and touring the area.
The thing we liked best about our trip was just being there. There was nothing special we had to see or do but we loved the ambience, the food, the people, the everything.
