Tonight’s a lazy post, here is a lovely set of stairs in Ventebren Provence. Just around the corner from the incredible restaurant called Le Table.

While taking this photo I was actually stood right in the lavender. I had been stood there for quite a while before realizing that I was surrounded by dozens of bees. Luckily they were merrily going about their way from flower to flower and didn’t take much notice of me.

On my second day in Venice, I went to the island of Burano. When you walk onto the first canal, you feel like you’ve walked into a movie set. I got the same feeling as I entered the town center of the tiny French town called Ventabren.

The drive there was pretty nerve racking though. The road is not wide enough for two cars but is two-way and almost always hugs a cliff edge. Once you add in the numerous blind corners you start to sweat!

While I was in Ventabren I stumbled across a Michelin starred restaurant of all things. It’s called Le Table De Ventabren and had just been refurbished and reopened by the chef Dan B. You can find their website here… though it doesn’t include any pictures of the restaurant, just Dan B.

I came back with my whole family (having booked a couple of drivers to take us this time) and it was a great experience. They time the dinner service so that you can sit atop the cliff watching the sunset over the Provence countryside.
