South of France-advice given and needed

If you are in the Cevennes, a little visited part of the South of France, about 1 hour North of Nimes you will find some of the cheapest and best food in France. Forget the posh restaurants and go fo the small places run by husband and wife seving food of the region. We loved the food at the Relais de Fageas
at Soudorgues, a small hamlet with stunning views over the mountain. Specialities are a hot brique of pelardon (the local goats cheese) and others according to the season so can be rabbit, wild boar or cuttlefish a l'amoricaine. Equally good was the little Hotel Real outside the small fortified village of Durfort. We shared the restaurant at lunchtime with a group of hunters who proudly showed us their catch although they didn't eat them for lunch. Feullite of seafood and kidneys were great.
But I need help as well. Am going to La Croix Valmer in December, a small seaside place between St Tropez and La Lavandou. Have not eaten well there in the past. Does anyone have any recommendations.
