Fodor's Expert Review La Chassagnette

$$$$ Arles French Fodor's Choice

Reputedly the original registered "organic" restaurant in Provence, this sophisticated yet comfortable spot, 12 km (7½ miles) south of Arles, is fetchingly designed and has a dining area that extends outdoors, where large family-style picnic tables await under a wooden-slate canopy overlooking the extensive gardens. Using ingredients that are grown right on the property, innovative master chef Armand Arnal serves prix-fixe menus that are a refreshing, though not inexpensive, mix of modern and classic French country cuisine (figure €85–€125 per person). À la carte options are equally admirable—and much more affordable—and might include sautéed Sauclières pig with chopped parsley, garlic, and grated lemon zest. Environmentally conscious oenophiles can wash it all down with a glass of eco-certified wine.
