A Visit to L'Art Glacier

Here's a little Provence sunshine for all those in the colder climes at the moment.

These pictures were taken in Spring at L'Art Glacier, a house-turned-ice-cream-café.


You can read about them (a family operated business) here.

It's off the beaten track in Provence but still draws a good crowd.

The fountain kept the littles entertained (how many times do you think the words 'NOT IN THE FOUNTAIN' were spoken that day?)


While the incredible views had the adults enthralled.


And everyone was impressed with the menu which had a whole lotta ice cream.

Our choices:

The Provençal trio of Rosemary, Lavender and Honey ice creams. This was the pick of the menu in my humble opinion. The mister ordered it.


My choice: Salted Butter Caramel, Tiramisu and something else I can't remember now. It was very nice, don't get me wrong, but the mister's was better.


The kids went for an assortment of Vanilla, Chocolate, White Chocolate and Caramel all with a few squirts of Chantilly cream. Mmmm.


If you are out and about in Provence on a warm day, I would recommend you drop in. The sweets and the scenery are just beautiful.

Seen on the way home:





Hope you're all having a great week.

I hope I haven't broken anything by the time this delayed entry posts.

And I hope the wifi is working at our accommodation so I can keep in touch.

A bientôt!

  2. Oh my, another address to plug into our GPS! It seems to be all in the presentation. Your kids must have thought they'd really hit the ice cream jackpot that day. Yummo! Hope the skiing/snow play is lots of fun (and def. that you haven't broken anything!!!).

  3. My mouth was interested when I read "ice cream" and it was drooling when I saw the photos!

    The field of poppies is stunning and the shot of the gate could grace the cover of a novel...

    Safe travels and enjoy!

    Bises,

  4. An ice cream restaurant!! My goodness, there's a grand idea. Don't you just hate it when someone else gets a meal that you wish you ordered? I do think that your heart plate and rose wins for looks though.

    Love love the photo of the poppies. I'd love to see a field of those or even lavender some day. Enjoy your chilly holiday. Be careful!

  13. Good golly, not sure what is more delicious, the view, the decor, ice cream or the way it's presented, those pretty flowers & sweet crockery, ah, so dreamy.
    Oh the poppies, fields of poppies, nothing prettier, love Posie
