Camping in Aiguine

After basking in the sun of the Lac De St Croix and our stay at Moustier Sainte Marie we went to the local market nearby which was abundant in cheese and charcuterie

We drove to Aiguine to set up
camp for the night in a tent with a wonderful view of the sunset.

This would be a day before our attempt to complete the Sentier Martel Trail so we wanted a very relaxed day and Aiguine was the right place.

we came across a local bistrot “Le Rive Gauche”
this place could be easily overlooked due to its  humble surroundings, the large entrees plus generous portions of food give you an idea of traditional french cuisine. When i travel im not looking for the touristy/ instagram eye candy restaurants but something that gives me a true feel of the area.
