Not much to report on other than that we have spent most of the last two days beside the pool reading and relaxing. The weather has been perfect, in the 30 degrees each day.
So Johnny Depp owns a villa in Plan de la Tour. A helicopter has buzzed us each day, ferrying Johnny to his abode I presume. Or otherwise it’s the paparazzi trying to take pics of him or us.
We did go for a drive this morning. I googled bike shops in the area and found one 20 km away in Vidauan. The roads here are crazy and narrow. They are only just wide enough for one car, winding through hills and dales. We ventured forth at 10-20kph waiting for a big truck to come around a blind corner. We were passed by cyclists and a herd of cows on our slow crawl to Vidauan (where the Pro Velo bike shop is).
We discovered all the shops were closed. Either it was a public holiday or a very long siesta time. We gave up and returned to Plan de la Tour, only stopping to refill the wine supply.
The pool and the weather cannot be beaten anyway. Lots of relaxing and reading. We are about to have dinner (fillet steak and dauphinoise potatoes with fresh mango) . . . and a Rosé to wash it down.
We will check out Sainte Maxime and its beaches tomorrow, and catch the ferry to St Tropez on Thursday. I must say we are loving it here.
