crops during this summer, ours was spared. We certainly had a few showers and cloudy or windy days, but on the whole we cannot complain. Once more, the French Riviera kept its heavenly renown.
Now, autumn is nearly here with the promise of warm soft daylight and fiery evening skies
and to help you make the most of them Le Petit Immo N° 22 recommends two places of culinary delight where you may treat your- selves at lunch or dinnertime in uncommon places. La Mère Germaine in Villefranche is a traditional must. By the quay of the natu- ral harbour, the restaurant has a family story, which we tell here, and immense notoriety for the fish food they serve. In the same sphere, we take you to a turn of the century architectural pearl La Rotonde in Beaulieu, which, thanks to the Lenôtre Region Mana- ger Philippe Joannes persistence, opened last June with even more ambition than ex- pected (see Le P.I. N°16).
In our monuments and remarkable sites column we look at what remains of the Baron Haussmann’s work in the Mont Boron in Nice, one of the most beautiful parks falling sharply towards the sea.
