Summer Sunday picnics at LaValla


During summer, there are simply few better things to do than arm yourself with cooler bag full of cheese, muffins, grapes, cold meat and more, head outside and lay down the blanket and just relax with friends and family. So, to help you cash in on this enjoyable right of passage, but remove the stress of the travel where normally, you will arrive at your perfect spot, only to realise you’ve forgotten the paper plates, butter and corkscrew. Come plAy and feaSt at LaValla with a ready to go Picnic.
