Happiness is in a Kitchen Garden

Bar of the lounge of La Chassagnette designed by Anne Igou Detail of the wall with dead leaves

To find this address in the district of Arles, it is necessary to be guided by a road bordered by rice fields and arrive around noon to breathe in the fragrance of a damp garden under the rays of the Camargue sun.

The message of La Chassagnette The dining room of La Chassagnette

"La Chassagnette" is an organic restaurant that is unique even in its class.
At lunch time, everything seems to stand still ...
Seated under the arbor, you realize that happiness is in a kitchen garden !
Armand Arnal, a young star chef, makes you rediscover the real flavors of seasonal fruits and vegetables freshly picked from his "extraordinary garden"... from his organic garden.

This is a magic moment of happiness, simplicity, sharing and passion...
It is a place you leave reluctantly and to which you wish to return as soon as possible for another delicious moment.

Hope you stop by and see images of a little adventure at Chateau Dumas in Auty.

You have a lovely, lovely blog.
