Photographs of Provence and text by Corey Amaro
What to do in Provence? Here are a few of my favorite places, addresses, dreamy spots, things to do and see, and other note worthy details about a place I call home.
First and foremost when you come to my neck of the woods let me know that you are in town... in the last few weeks I have met: Salama, Jani, Renee, Colette, Laura, Joanna, Tanya, Rose, Lynn, and Julie. And I wonder why I have gained a 100 pounds of happiness?
Place to Eat, because that is my favorite thing to do after antiquing:
Chez Bernard's Restaurant is literally on the edge of the sea. Off the beaten track, simple decor, good food, (try their fish soup) do I need to say, amazing location? You'll need to walk about ten minutes on a small path to get there. Do not forget to go bring a swimsuit for a swim.

Chemin de la Mer
Toulon - 83100
|La route du Cap Brun,|
Romantic, charming, the owner has a thing for antiques, and is connected to some of the biggest antique dealers in Marseille. The drive is breathtaking, especially at sunset. The menu is vast grilled fish to pizza, servings are large, the desserts need to be shared, I love, love, love, their Tarte Tatin.

Le Chalet du Pharo
Simple outdoor cafe, do not let the plastic tables and chairs fool you, it has the best view of the old port in Marseille. The menu is a wonderful surprise. Not a place to eat a sandwich.
