Ah, picnicking in Provence: what better way to enjoy food than in the fresh air of southeastern France? This part of Europe is regarded by many as a perfect Mediterranean escape. And when you’re cycling past perfectly purple lavender fields, which fill the air with that unmistakable, sweet aroma, it’ll be hard to disagree.

Maybe you’d like to share a blanket with some chilled wine and grapes in the shadows of some ancient Roman ruins? Or perhaps you prefer the lull of the sea’s waves as your backdrop. Snacking on moules (mussels) next to the twinkling azure coastline is certainly a winning combination.

There are so many potential picnic paradises, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Here are some of the most spectacular and relaxing places to enjoy a slap-up spread in Provence – and they’re all accessible by bike.

Parc National des Calanques

Start your visit in Marseille and you’ll be close to the Calanques national park. These soaring natural cliff formations hide all manner of cosy coves and magical, solitary beaches: ideal for a quiet bite to eat while you absorb the impressive views. Take a hiking tour, or follow the trails on two wheels until you find the perfect spot for a snack of fresh baguette and creamy local cheese.

Pending the opening of the new Picasso Museum in Aix-en-Provence in 2021, we recommend visiting the Picasso – Picabia, histoire de peinture show at Musée Granet from June 9th. And if you’re a Picasso fan, stay with us because here are 6 reasons to see Picasso’s work in Provence in 2018.

Streets to roam in Aix-en-Provence

Aix-en-Provence literally overflows with great addresses, so we recommended simply roaming the old paved streets to discover its many pretty boutiques, excellent Provencal eateries and festive venues.

Rue Granet, lined with gorgeous shops and sporting a village atmosphere. You’ll find a wine bar, restaurants and decoration shops here, to name but a few.

Rue Loubon, just behind Rue Granet, is a favourite haunt for locals, home to many bookshops including Le cercle des arts, a café-come-bookshop specialized in art books. And if the walk has made you peckish, settle down at Chez Féraud for a delicious “Soupe au Pistou”, “Daube” stew, “Supions” squid and other typical Provencal dishes.

If you’re here to party, Rue de la Verrerie is home to many bars and pubs and is a favourite haunt for students. If you’re seeking something a little more “caliente”, we definitely recommend Rue Félix Gaut, offering plenty of yummy Latin-style eateries including La Cita, an excellent tapas and sangria restaurant that whisks you straight off to Spain. El Bolero, La Cantina and L’Empanadas Club are also must-do addresses.



There’s a lot to see in the Alpilles, so it’s a race against the clock if you hope to fit it all in. The humble olive is the star of the region and tours and tastings are available at plenty of local estates. For lunch, get a table at Le Patio, totally devoted to regional produce and set in a former sheep fold. Les Olivades is devoted to the manufacture of Provençal fabric. To stretch your legs, walk around Aureille, Orgon and Chiari cheese dairy. A visit to Saint-Rémy isn’t complete without enjoying a sumptuous treat from the Lilamand confectioner’s. Ready? Steady.
