After a beautiful walk from Caromb to Le Barroux in the Vaucluse region
we found this gorgeous petit restaurant - it was just a few tables
gathered under the shade of a lovely old tree
the set menu of Salade Compose - was absolutely divine
(terrine - melon topped with prosciutto - risotto - beautiful cheeses & salad vegetables
with a selection of fruit tarts for dessert
Walking back were sweeping views out to "Les Dentelles" a low mountain range
which is actually the foothills of Provence's highest peak - Mont-Ventoux
The name "dentelle" means lace ~ referring to the jagged shape of their white lime-stone peaks.
what a welcome sight to find the roadway spasmotically dotted with lovely- Alep Pines-
this gave us a shady spot to catch our breaths,
take in the spectacular scenery and top up our fluid intake!
