Our Summer Party is fun for all the family, even those with 4 legs!
This year we're welcoming even more local artisans and businesses so you can discover their amazing products and services.
Drinks are on the house - with chilled white and rosé wine available along with a selection of soft drinks.
Bring a picnic to enjoy in the shady olive grove or buy one of our Hotdogs or Notdogs* to enjoy with your glass of wine.
The entrance fee is just 10€ a family and all profits go to helping animals in need on the Riviera.
