My partner and I are off to Provence tomorrow, this is a very last minute planning and I have not yet made any reservation (shame I know) I have only 2 days in Luberon and need to choose very wisely! Any last minute help here would be appreciated :)
Wednesday arriving at Avignon – we’re heading straight to our accommodation in Maubec. Possibly not arriving until 4-5pm. We will be very tired and will either want to eat at the hotel (if decent) or somewhere near.
- Is there any suggestion for a nice dinner in or very near Maubec? I read in the famous thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/781261 that’s La Bergerie in Maubec serves decent pizza but I really don’t fancy pizza since I’m in France but if it is VERY good then I could be tempted :)
Thursday is the only full day I have. I plan to explore Bonnieux during the day, finding a light lunch since dinner may be heavy.
- Any suggestion here for a cafe or boulangeriethat we can grab something nice?
Dinner plan was originally at Le Casteles in Sivergues. I called them today but Thursday night is the only night they are closed! (may be a private function, what a shame). They are available for lunch but from what I read in other discussions is that this place is more special for dinner.
- Is it still worth booking for lunch? Wednesday night is also free but after over 6 hrs on a train I don’t think we’re going to want to far from Maubec.
My alternate plan for Thursday now is to book dinner at La Bartavelle in Goult instead (still trying but no one has yet picked up the phone!). Is there any other suggestion in case they are full? (will try to call again tonight and tomorrow morning).
Friday plan is to head to Lourmarin market in the morning, grab something to eat and explore the village. We want to be in Sisteron by dinner time to meet up with a friend, whose wedding we are attending on Saturday :)
I might not get answer in time but it would still be good for future reference :)
Thank you very much!
