The Cannes dining playbook: the South of France has a restaurant to suit every agenda

Published Post author

South of France

IF YOU WANT: PLATS DU JOURAND PEOPLE WATCHING

The splashiest venue, literally, is the seaside [1] z PLAGE (73 boulevard de la Croisette), across the street from the Hotel Martinez. Stars from Jessica Chastain to Jodie Foster are drawn to its rows of square white umbrellas to sip signature Moet mimosas and tuck into roast fish. Just up the street and framed by floor-to-ceiling windows is the Michelin one-starred [2] PARK 45 (45 boulevard de la Croisette), where Jude Law has been seen among diners eating the sea bass with pistachio nuts and other light Med fare. Situated just up the coast on the way to Antibes is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jo[ie's favorite spot, [3] CH EZ TETOU (8 avenue des Freres Roustan, Golfe Juan)* Once a beach shack, it’s still got a homey vibe that dissipates once you see the menu: $100 for bouillabaisse. Cash only, please. Director and The Bling Ring producer Roman Coppola recommends ordering the beignets for dessert, which are served with huge pots of jam. “Whenever we’ve been to Cannes, my family and I have always made a stop here,” he says. For those who want to get out of town but still make their whereabouts known, the famed [4] COLOMBE D’OR (1 place General de Gaulle) in the artsy hillside town of St.-Paul de Vence is beloved by the likes of Hugh Grant and producer Jerry Weintraub. “They have very good food,” says Weintraub. “If you can’t eat good food in France, you can’t eat good food anywhere.” The grand, wood-paneled dining room is stocked with paintings by Hatisse and Picasso. The can’t-miss dessert is the Grand Marnier souffle. Inland along the Riviera, the still celebrated [5] LE MOULIN DE MOUGINS (1028 avenue Notre-Dame de Vie), situated in a 16th century mill in Mougins, is where top toques Alain Ducasse and Daniel Boulud got their start. Further afield but worth the schlep is Nice’s legendary [6] LA PETITE MAISON (11 rue St.-Francois de Paule), where E[ton John and Madonna famously bumped into each other last year and reconciled after their latest feud. Enjoy Nicoise specialties like the zucchini blossom fritters. Continue reading

Stop at the hotel and Explore the city

Published Post author

Stop at the hotel and Explore the city

IN THE VERY OLD DAYS, there was Old Sarum–a fortress on a hill, with a cathedral and castle. Church and state feuded for years, and in 1220 Bishop Richard Poore won permission to relocate the cathedral a few miles away, down in the river valley. Within a generation, the cathedral was largely complete, and, not surprisingly, the town followed the bustling ecclesiastical community it maintained. The result is the most complete 13th-century cathedral in England, and a precinct of medieval streets and alleys. Today, Salisbury is a contemporary, friendly provincial city of 40,000, full of good hotels and easy to navigate on foot.

I Get Around

To the southwest of London, and the only cathedral city in Wiltshire, by car Salisbury is a short two hours from the capital (less from the airports), most directly via the M4, the A303 and the A338. By train, Salisbury is an hour or so from London Waterloo on the Exeter line. Salisbury is also midpoint on the major rail line running between Bath and Bristol and Portsmouth Harbour.
In the Beginning

Dramatic Salisbury Cathedral has the tallest spire in England, at 404 feet. It also has the earliest surviving choir stalls in Britain (1236), and the oldest mechanical working clock in the world (1386). The medieval Cloisters are the largest in Britain. Its Chapter House, built in 1260, displays the best preserved of the four surviving copies of Magna Carta sealed by King John in 1215. Outside, the 13th-century cathedral is surrounded by the largest (and one of the prettiest) Cathedral Closes in the country. Visible down the soaring nave, the majestic royal blue stained-glass window beyond the quire commemorates prisoners of conscience throughout the world. Return later in the afternoon for the unforgettable experience of Choral Evensong.
Salisbury is blessed with a number of fine, moderate three-star hotels in good location for exploring the city. The Red Lion on Milford Street may be the oldest continually operating hotel in England. The Cathedral Hotel is right across the street. There is also the White Hart, Milford Hall and, across medieval Harnham Bridge and the pastoral water meadows, the Rose & Crown.

Other Treasures Worth the Taking

Built for the stone masons working on Salisbury Cathedral, the Church of St. Thomas Becket in the heart of the city has been the parish church for centuries. The best known of many interesting features in the Gothic church is a rare medieval wall mural depicting the Last Judgment.

QueenMompesson House in the Close is considered a perfect example of Queen Anne architecture, with magnificent plasterwork and fine 18th-century furnishings. The National Trust property includes a charming walled garden and garden tearoom.

Just down the lane in the Close is the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum. The local history museum contains an eclectic mix of exhibits covering 2,000 years of local lore—including an award-winning Stonehenge Gallery and J.M.W. Turner watercolors, and archaeology collections of national importance.

On Tuesdays and Saturdays, the vibrant market in the Market Square has been ongoing since 1227. The 15th-century Poultry Cross is the sole remaining of three medieval market crosses that once marked the square’s major commodity markets.

Salisbury’s Secret

If time permits, do take a stroll on the town path next to the Queen Elizabeth Gardens across the Water Meadows to the Old Mill on the River Naddar. These are the views, of grazing cattle in fertile pasture with Salisbury Cathedral’s spire in the background, that inspired one of John Constable’s most famous series of paintings. The idyllic scene at the Old Mill is great, too.

For Reviving Food and Drink

Look next door. With a heritage as an army town, Salisbury has more pubs per capita than most places. Restaurants of many descriptions line city center streets. The Market Inn is a great gastropub popular with locals. The Cloisters and the pretty Ox-Bow Inn are atmospheric 16th-century pubs worth a visit. But even Wagamama has come to Salisbury, and there are well-regarded Thai restaurants along with first-class hotel dining rooms.

Along the Way

With its compact, easily navigated city center and well-situated hotels, Salisbury is a good base for exploring nearby. A few miles north on Salisbury Plain are the ruins of Old Saturn and the new visitor center at considerably older Stonehenge. Busses are available from the station in Salisbury.

Just west is historic Wilton House, seat of the Earl of Pembroke, and renowned for its Inigo Jones interiors. Near Mere, the 18th-century landscape gardens of Stour-head have been known for years as the “Flagship of the National Trust” and may indeed be the finest in the existence.

The heart of England – Discover travel…

Published Post author

“The heart of England” is as much a romantic ideal as a geographical region. The countryside of our imagination, though, extends vaguely north of Bath, through the Cotswold Hills, and encompassing Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Just as everywhere in Britain, it can’t be unpacked in a single visit. Here’s a gently paced road trip, however, that will give you that “Heart of England” experience.

Day 1–Northwest into the Heartland

From central London, or leaving from the airports, our destination is Cirencester, “Capital of the Cotswolds.” The most direct route is the M4 west past Reading. From Junction 15 at Swindon, take the A419 about 20 miles northwest to Cirencester. It’s an easy morning drive. With a colorful history dating back to the Romans, the pretty market town makes a great base from which to explore the southern Cotswolds–with several lovely 3-star hotels in and around the town center. The place to begin is the Tourist Information Centre at the Corinium Museum. The parish church of St. John Baptist on Market Place is another visit not to be missed. But as you’ll see, this is a town worth exploring. Continue reading
