Le Verso Restaurant Pizzeria, Avignon | BKWine Pick

They have good pizzas. That’s the most important thing to say about Le Verso. The restaurant is nothing special, quite plain. But pizzas are good. They do have a terrasse (outside seating), albeit on a street with quite a lot of traffic. It is only 50 meters off Place de l’Horloge but is comfortably un-touristy. […]

At Le Chapelier toque in Avignon

Le Chapelier Toqué, Avignon restaurant | BKWine Pick

Le Capelier Toqué is a tiny restaurant. It is easy to miss it when you walk up the street Rue Guillaume Puy in the Quartier des Teinturiers (the old dyers’ part of Avignon – definitely worth a visit). Once you find it you may be a bit surprised. It has only a few table but […]

Cave Saint-Marc, Villeneuve-lès-Avignon – BKWine Pick

If you want to discover the vineyards of southern Rhône the small town of Villeneuve-les-Avignon is a good base. It’s almost like a suburb of Avignon, just across the river, but actually an old town in it’s own right. When the Pope was residing in Avignon in the 14th century the cardinals lived in Villeneuve […]
