Let's head off to St Paul De Vence in the South of France and have lunch at The Colombe D'Or restaurant, its still the chic fashionable place to go (though some say its an over-priced tourist trap now). Just like back in 1966 in the lush romantic thriller MOMENT TO MOMENT when Jean Seberg in that fabulous Yves St Laurent wardrobe, drives her little red car to it and strolls around the town with her love interest, Sean Garrison - as per reviews at Jean Seberg label. Its a "Movie I Love". At the restaurant they watch the doves flying into sun "saying farewell to the day", as Henry Mancini's great score swells.
I have just been reading about St Paul De Vence as a great South of France destination, its been years since I have been around that way, and it whets my appetite. It is an exquisite fortified village up in the hills near those other towns like Nice, Menton, Juan-Les-Pins, and it has medieval stone cottages and also a great art gallery, not to mention that restaurant...I wonder whats on today's menu ...
