Full description
First, you will be taught the rules of the game along with a brief history of the sport. Then, learn how to handle the boule, throw, shoot, score and master the fine art of disputing a point. After, play a competitive game of pétanque (with a glass of rosé in your hand, of course).

The hosts will also have some homemade Pastis to sample. A commemorative trophy will be offered to the winning team during an aperitif with Pastis, Rosé and traditional Provencal snacks (anchoiade, tapenade, mushrooms, etc.). If you loose, get ready to kiss Fanny's Ass (just a statue).

Play for about three hours with a view of a castle in the South of France. The game will take place either in Lourmarin or Ansouis. Even if you have never played before, you will enjoy the game and the lovely drinks and foods afterward.
