Le Petit Café is delightfully eccentric. A vintage sports car is parked outside and a bizarre assortment of bric a brac fills the dining room and interior, including a dentist’s chair! I didn’t like to ask. Outside, you sit under the trees on an assortment of brightly coloured cushions, painted tables and chairs. There’s a large fig tree, a shaggy white dog, coloured lights and glass bottles, an old wine barrel, pots growing bamboo, a birdcage and an assortment of herbs which match the eccentricity and charm of your host. A Panier des Saveurs (which is a tapas made from seasonal Provencal ingredients) served on a rusty, old vintage tray and a glass of chilled white wine later and you’re ready to spend the rest of your life here. It’s one of those hedonistic places you visit for sheer pleasure. And then want to stay for a lifetime. In short, it’s one of the many great little gems of Provence.
