This morning we started the day with a full English Cooked Breakfast at the local English pub (The Blue Lady great remendiation Clarke). This local English Pub was full of French housewives who come to the pub for English courses the publican is running, what a great we to attract the locals and they serve great breakfast with good coffee. We are travelling to Marseille for a look around and then on to Fontvieille in Provance for the evening. Marseille was a bit of a letdown after the wonderful coastal cities of Monaco and Antibes and was on par with Naples in Italy. But I must see Marseille harbour area must have more policemen on patrol than any other place we have been to, they were everywhere. After a walk around and lunch we head off between the Golf of Fos and Etang de Berre which is in the area that the River Rhone comes out to the Mediterranean Sea. We even saw some salt lakes in this area. Tonight we are staying in the small village of Fontvieille in a wonderful 18 room boutique hotel the Villa Regalido. What a fantastic place this building is in the heart of the village but is so peaceful with a beautiful garden with a pool and terrace area. This building was originally a flour mills then was converted to a private family Villa and then into a boutique hotel. We spent a lovely afternoon around the pool and then enjoyed a great 3 course meal on the Terrace.
