We stayed at the Hotel Maya, a lovely hotel in Cavaliare, where there are a few rooms, and the Blatman and I were right at the top. Being the youngest of the guests it was probably right, although with the hotel lift stopping working at 8pm at night, 4 floors had to be mastered. Needless to say, my shoes pretty much left my feet by the first step at the bottom
First up, as it should be, is breakfast, delivered to our room every day in the morning so we could have our fresh bread and croissants out on our balcony in the sun.
This is the harbour at St Tropez. We went into st tropez for a drink with all the guests the day after we got there, and i enjoyed probably my favourite drink, a Diablo, which is lemonade and a fruit flavoured syrup. St Tropez is known for the large boats and yachts in the harbour and it is the best place for people watching!!
This is what we describe as our sea glimpse!!! It is right at the bottom of the road! This is the view from our top floor balcony. Right in the middle of the town and it was so nice to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle but still quiet and relaxing. The harbour in Cavalaire has lots of restaurants there so there are lots of choices. I ate so many new things on this holiday and I would go back just to eat!!!
This is the large traditional french wedding cake, known as a Grande Montagne. It is made from profiteroles, filled with creme patisserie, a sweetened cream, then dipped in molten sugar so they all stick together and then sugared almonds fill the gaps in the profiteroles. At the bottom is a layer of peanut brittle. It was so yummy!!! In the picture is my favourite patio heater Bruno has at the restaurant, it looks like a lovely flame, and the beautiful red roses that were on the tables.
Well these are a few pictures from our trip for the moment. Hope you all enjoyed them. It was a wonderful day and a wonderful time with family and friends.
