THREE OF THE BEST: ALFRESCO DINING
Nothing says summer more than eating outdoors. We bring you three of our favourite alfresco dining venues, and the chance to WIN a Fortnum & Mason hamper packed with delicious comestibles…
Avignon, Southern France
Summer sunshine is pretty much guaranteed in the south of France, and what more lovely dramatic places to relax with a chilled glass of locally produced wine? Take a seat in one of the welcoming cafes or restaurants facing the vast Gothic Palace of the Popes, and soak up the atmosphere of centuries of history and drama.
Aquavit Terrace, Viking Longship
Whether you’re feasting on delicious flavoured German sausages with sweet mustard as you sail along the Rhine, sipping on a glass of Bordeaux as you drink in the views along the Dordogne, there are few more idyllic spots to sit back and relax than The Aquavit Terrace on the Viking Longships. Simply perfect.
Coffee and cake are never far away in the heart of Heidelberg’s Altstadt (Old Town). Nor is the air of romance. Authors, composers and painters have flocked to this charming city since the early 1800s. Its half-timbered and Baroque houses, cobblestone streets are the perfect place for enjoying a meal or a snack, along with a little people watching.
