Le Jardin Restaurant in Mallemort

My previous “encounters” with Mallemort had fleeting, passing through either in a car or on a bike. Mallemort has the benefit and possibly the curse of having the D23 intersect the town. This is the route that crosses the Durance and joins the Vaucluse to the Bouches du Rhône. It …
