The Calanques of Cassis

Located about twenty kilometers from Marseille, the calanques of Cassis, accessible by car or by boat, offer a wonderful view over the Marseille coast and invite both tourists and locals to a breathtaking spectacle. Equip yourself with your best sneakers and take off to explore Sormiou, Morgiou, Sugiton, En-Vau and Port Miou! Nestled between the 400-meter-high cliffs, the calanques landscape is a wild paradise. In the distance, massive limestone rocks and clear turquoise water are part of the decor. Magic!

Mont Sainte–Victoire

Peaking at 1,011 meters above sea level, the Mont Sainte-Victoire is simply magic! An iconic site on the Aix-en-Provence landscape, its reputation is due to the scenic beauty it offers visitors and which was for that matter, also the main source of inspiration for Paul Cézanne. During his career, the artist painted the Mont Sainte-Victoire more than 80 times!

Porquerolles

It’s hard not to dream about Porquerolles Island and its endless sandy beaches. A protected site since 1988, it is full of surprises for those who venture here. Between hikes, palm trees, wilderness, white sandy beaches and breathtaking views overlooking the cliffs, it’s impossible not to fall under the spell of this heavenly place!

Menerbes

Located in the heart of the Luberon at more than 240 meters above sea level, the village of Menerbes has an amazing view over the Calavon valley and offers a rich and varied program of things to do. Don’t miss a visit to the Citadel vineyard, or to the famous Corkscrew Museum. Expect your stay in Menerbes to be exotic and fantastic!

Roquebrune-Cap-Martin

Perched at 225 meters above sea level, and located in one of the most beautiful parts of the French Riviera, the town of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is known for its breathtaking views over the bay of Monaco and the Grande Corniche. Here luxury, calm and pleasure await you. Its surrounding area should be discovered without delay too: Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Cap d’Ail, Beaulieu-sur-Mer... The choice is immense!
