February is the month for festivals and on Sunday February 4th we encourage you to drive through the amazing, wondrous and beautiful Mimosa forests to a “Mimosa Fete” in Tanneron and then to our arranged winter lunch in nearby Auribeau.  The Mimosa Fete sells ‘everything Mimosa’ and is not to be missed – go any time during the morning.  Jackie and Burton Gintell will be there at about 11am to greet you.

Then make your way through more beautiful Mimosa to the lovely warm restaurant “Le Moulin du Sault”, Auribeau.  This was an original olive mill in the 15th century and is perfect for your Sunday lunch.
