One sunny day we decided to go to Verdon canyon and stopped in this magic place to have some wine with a cheese plate.It was one of our best moments of our trip,It was peaceful and the lady was really polite in a very elegant coffee-snack-refreshment environment.

This bar has just opened (Jul 14 2016) and run by the excellent couple ( Bernard and his wife) who used to own the outstanding Café du Midi also in Bauduen.

The Papillon is a great stop for an apero. They specialise in great local wines at reasonable prices. You can nibble on their delicious plateaux of meats and cheeses as well as local epiceries (pâtés, tapenade, anchois etc).

It's the perfect spot for an early evening drink and nibbles on a delightful terrace ( or inside if raining/cold), overlooking the stunning Lac de St Croix.

This is a new wine bar, opened this year (1916) both furnished and stocked to a very high quality. It is friendly and family run, and English is spoken. It stocks a wide range of wines from the region as well as a selection of local delicacies. Wine can be brought by the bottle at reasonable prices, all of good quality. Tapas for lunch or supper is generous enough to keep you going. Well worth going out of your way and coming to Bauduen if you are visiting the Gorge du Verdon, looking at the faience in Moustiers or just causing the area (north of the Var). The view across the lake is great and the village itself worth exploring.

This is a new family-run bar, stunningly set up in a traditional Provencal village cave (cellar) overlooking the Lac de St Croix in the north of the Var. If you are visiting the area, such as seeing the faience in Mouistiers or the spectacular Gorge du Verdon, this is well worth the visit, as is the whole small village. It holds a stock of the best local wines and a selection of produce, and serves tapas only at the moment. Staff very friendly and speak English
