L’Epicerie d’Aix

family travel provence

When you need a moment away from the crowds on Cours Mirabeau but you’re not ready to go home, head to the hidden courtyard with burbling fountain at Place des Trois Ormeaux. The small folk can play around the fountain while the parents choose from a well-curated, by-the-glass list of French wines. Dinner here is pleasant, but neither cheap nor amazing, making this is a good option for an aperitif on a day you know you’re cooking at home. The restaurant has a little shop of sorts. You can buy wine by the bottle, tea, and olive oil here too.

Small Folk Travel

Small Folk Travel is a family travel site by mama and travel writer Taraneh Jerven. The Jerven family (two toddlers, one bun in the oven) travels incessantly. When researching our trips, we couldn't find the family travel coverage we were looking for. We did our own research. We wrote the family travel guides ourselves. Taraneh Jerven writes for international travel publishers including RoughGuides.com and DK Eyewitness Travel. We cover good stuff for discerning parents and their little ones. Often these overlap. If they don't, we take turns.
