Stop searching. Paradise is found.

Restanques de Lion, Plan de la Tour

I believe I have peaked. Plan de la Tour and the villa we are going to be living in for the next 7 days are idyllic. If there is a paradise, this is it. Peaceful, warm and serene, and with a tepid, soothing horizon pool. I don’t think we will move from here for the next week. We loaded up with provisions from the local Carrefour (supermarket) in St Maxime and we will live by the pool reading, swimming and drinking wine all day, every day.

Justin Fuller the man


We left La Ciotat behind after watching Justin and the Canterbury Red Devils win the National Senior Club Championship against the Southern Stampede in Queenstown. The game was streamed live and was very tense. Drawn 5-5 after full time, 5 minutes overtime was played with no further score. Canterbury took the goal shootout 2-0. Well done Justin and the team.

Pool house




Plan de la Tour is a beautiful village. We stopped for lunch when we arrived. Our villa has more than met our expectations. It’s up a valley and up the hill. The house is surrounded by olive groves and fig trees. It is immaculately landscaped and set up for relaxation with no neighbours in sight.





I have posted a few pics from our first few hours here. We have just been watching todays stage of the Vuelta a España on TV. Go Contador.

Again well done the Devils.

Au revoir

    Absolutely amazing!!
    You aren’t going to want to leave! This will be the new Fiji!!

    • This could be the new Fiji…sadly it takes a lot longer to get here. We are not long up. About to have coffee and pan au chocolate on the terrace before hitting the pool. It’s not easy! Donna

    No stop it right now! Peaceful, warm, quiet, food and wine you say. Can’t think of anything to add, except maybe Johnny Depp. . .

    • Am keeping my eyes open for Johnny! I’m sure I’ll bump into him eventually. Don’t think I can come home until I do! Donna

    Hi from Karen and George. Paradise looks great. The Nor West winds have been trying to blow us into Christchurch this past week. We are working in the garden most days. Your trip is making me realise it is about time we had a long break. Make the most of your time away. Keep safe. K

  4. Hi guys. We are having an amazing time. Chilling here for the week before we hit Rome. Had forgotten about our north west winds…no doubt we will be re-introduced on our return! You definately should think about a good break, it’s very energising. See you all in a couple of weeks. Donna
