Le Mas Provençal

To believe it you have to see it. But I will try to somehow explain why Le Mas Provencal appears on the pages of my blog.

This place doesn’t have a fantastic panoramic view over Cote d’Azur, which so many other venues listed on my blog have. It is a restaurant and you will eat there. And that is where everything ordinary about it ends. Picture yourself having a dinner in the middle of a fairy-tale jungle, surrounded with the most amazing flowers, including those that are carnivorous (!). The Alice in Wonderland type jungle. Done? Now, I don’t doubt your imagination but one thing I will tell you – what you’ve just imagined is only about half of what this place is.Read More »
