Shop like a local - Valbonne, Provence Edition

Eating, visiting and browsing through open-air food markets and stores are a few of the many joys of being on holidays - tasting new cultures, seeing all the colours and smelling all the smells!

With food being an important part of our holidays and way of life, where possible, we try to seek out food that has the shortest amount of time from produce to plate as we believe this is the best kind of food that nourishes the soul.

Easily accessible car, when we’re in Provence, we love to support the locals and always do our food shop in villages when we’re in the area. Check out our favourite local shops just 5 min away from our August home where you'll be able to buy fresh products to make the best meals at home and live like a local.
