Hi All -- I'll be traveling with friends who love to eat in southern France during the last week of August. We'll be spending two nights in Carcasonne and two night in Apt (just north of Aix-en-Provence). Does anyone have any suggestions of incredible restaurants in/near these places? We'd prefer to take dinners near these towns, as we like to drink and don't want to have to drive anywhere. But, we plan to take day trips during the days and would happily plan a trip around a long lunch.
Also -- I understand that it is the wine crush in the region and vineyards all have food and wine festivals to celebrate. Any idea where I could find more information on these celebrations?
