Le Marais (Hyères)

Black and white checkered walls, a cascade of greenery, modern furniture made by Antoine Boudin, a private beach, views of Porquerolles island… Much like a Swiss Army knife, David Pirone’s artsy-chic spot offers up yoga classes, relaxation and a low-maintenance Italian diet. Tested and approved the day we went for lunch: a platter of libidinous culatello di zibello, served with runny stracciatella and fried focaccia; hand-cut tuna tartare with a soy-wasabi condiment; classic linguine with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and pesto; and a surprise-free tiramisu. Seen on the next table over: appetizing spaghetti alle vongole, a flambéed risotto in a wheel of Parmesan cheese (€38 for two), and a whole swordfish cooked over the embers with a zucchini and fresh mint tartare (€24). // G.LeP.

FEELING THIRSTY? Les Jalets, a Crozes-Hermitage from Jaboulet (€8 a glass), an organic white Cassidain from Le Clos d’Albizzi (€38 a bottle) or a natural Var red from the Vignoble Kennel (€48).

PRICE: À la carte €38-72, kids’ menu €18.
