Barack Obama celebrates Father's Day with daughters Malia and Sasha with a lavish dinner in France
The Obamas are in France for a week for their summer vacation and will be touring the Provence region in the South of France
Former first couple Barack Obama, Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha celebrated Father's Day in style in Avignon, France on Sunday.
The Obamas covered a tour of a gothic palace in Avignon and then headed for a lavish dinner at Michelin-starred La Mirande.
The former first family is reportedly taking some time to see the sites of the Provence region and the South of France during their tour and all the Obama ladies dressed stylishly for the special day, the Daily Mail reports.
While Malia sported a white backless jumpsuit, her younger sister Sasha was pictured in a yellow snakeskin dress with white sneakers.
Former first lady Michelle Obama was seen wearing a black sun dress during the family's Sunday trip.
As the family left the restaurant in Avignon, a crowd of bystanders gathered outside, waving at the president and his family.
Earlier in the day, the family had visited the biggest gothic palace in the world, Palais des Papes.
The monument was built in the 1300s by popes and has 25 of its rooms open to the public. The tour includes a visit to the private rooms where the pope lived, including the Papal Chamber and the Stag Room that is “decorated with frescoes on a naturalistic, secular theme.”
Malia and Sasha, a day before, were also spotted in the L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue Market, which is a key attraction in the town popularly called the “Venice of Provence.”
Reports state that the Obamas are set to be in France for a week for their summer vacation.
The family trip comes right after Sasha's graduation from Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. She is set to move to the University of Michigan for her freshman year in the fall. While Malia is currently on her summer break from Harvard.
The family is reportedly staying in a mansion in Villeneuve-les-Avignon (Gard) which is located in the middle of a pear orchard on the island of La Motte.
