Once you reach the end of this bumpy road, pulling up to Le Potager feels like a dream. The oasis in question? A farm restaurant run by friends Jérémie Verdeau (a former festival organizer) and Sophie Pollini (who used to work at Les Beaux-Arts) with its massive shady terrace lined by olive trees, string lights and a stage. For us, the night we went: the potagère version of a CBL (chicken bacon lettuce sandwich) made with braised batavia, an oeuf parfait to replace the chicken, crispy pancetta and a Parmesan sauce; silky red kuri squash ravioli with a spring onion cream and fried sage leaves; a festival of vegetables as a full plate (grilled zucchini, glazed carrots, cream of broad beans, spring onions, tender potatoes, raw beetroot…) or as a side to sea bream vivified by an almond-medlar-pea sauce vierge; and for an unbeatable dessert, try Sophie’s famous chestnut tiramisu, better than the other more old-school options. And while you’re there, you may as well fill your shopping basket with their excellent jams. // Victoria Bout 

FEELING THIRSTY? An organic-obsessed wine selection with some beautiful Patrimonio wines: an organic red from the Domaine Cantina Di Torra served by the glass (€6.50), Sarah, a white from the Domaine Giacometti (€34 a bottle), unfiltered red and white wines from Muriel Giudicelli (€36), garden smoothies (€5) and homemade digestives (pomegranate, kiwi, finger lime). 
PRICE: À la carte €46-56. But FYI, they don’t take cards!
