The room lacks charm but the team is in small care and everything goes on the plate, whether for a small snack or a big Sunday lunch. Melting Panisses, generous vegetarian platter, gargantuan deli plates, and desserts!!!! as beautiful as good. Accept to wait a little, they just opened and are victims of their success. Reservation highly recommended.

We took the D17 from Aix, which runs along the southern edge. The weather was a bit rainy, and the mountain was sometimes shrouded in clouds, but there were great views from the stops along the road.
