In the hotter months, April to September, most activity  – almost all meals, lounging around in the sun, reading in the shade, and drinks before dinner are all conducted outside, although I have frequently eaten outside in March and October or even outside those months. They say in Provence you can eat lunch outside at least one day in every week of the year.

There is a great all-weather table tennis table, a couple of sets of boules, and a two pushbikes if you fancy a ride around around the countryside.

The bassin is great for keeping cool and having fun.
