We brought the rose – Chateau Fontvert Apolline. Madame was happy!


We braved the biting wind and popped into St Remy before the market wound down completely, with a view to visiting our favourite baguette and roast chicken man on the Town Square and then moving off to Clos St Paul for a much-needed picnic.

Initial disappointment at finding our friend missing in action – too cold, probably – faded as we  walked through the newly paved streets to find a new gourmet foods take-away: La Pintade Chaponnee. Situated in the main lane going into the old village, Rue Carnot, the shop is in a little cavern and boasts all kinds of delicacies to take-away, as well as some high end wine and olive oil.

As it was market day, we had to have the traditional roast chicken but a few more other sides………. delicious! This place is going to be very popular!

Our picnic spread. Chicken and salad wraps; roast chicken (small), bean salad, roasted aubergines and peppers.
