13260 Cassis, France
The Calanques de Cassis are also of Marseille, and stretch the swath of scenic coastline between the two cities. You can hike around and enjoy the French national park on foot, or tour by sea. This photo was taken on a 3-hour boat tour that...

11 Rue Brémond, 13260 Cassis, France
Whilst in Cassis, France, we were lucky enough to eat spectacular food every day--for every meal. It was a culinary journey like no other. Every night was a new meal, at a new restaurant. That is, except for the repeat dinners at La Cigale et la...

13260 Cassis, France
Pastis, an aniseed-flavored aperitif, is a bit of an acquired taste. Either you like it or you don't, but if you're a French man of, say, 60 years it's almost required that you brood over a cool glass on a regular basis. After spending a bunch of...

3 Rue Frédéric Mistral, 13260 Cassis, France
I will never forget this picture perfect breakfast - fresh organge juice, fresh coffee, high on a cliff, overlooking the turquoise waters of the Cote D'Azur. All while staying as a guest at the beautiful Chateau de Cassis, a small hotel that was...

The fastest way to get to Cassis from Avignon is to take the A7 straight down to A8-A52 before getting onto D559 (Route Pierre Imbert) that will lead you into Cassis. During our visit to Provence we happened to stay in a place run by local folks...

20224 Casamaccioli, France
From a very comfortable base in Casamaccioli (population 100, this is the view from my room) chez Jean-François et Pascale, I followed a breathtakingly beautiful trail up to the top of this peak, the third highest in Corsica. Stunning vistas at...

As part of Corsica’s Gulf of Porto UNESCO World Heritage Site, Les Calanques de Piana (Calanche di Piana in Corsican) is a world of eerie geologic formations, high cliffs, red granite columns and spectacular sea caves and arches. On the...

Known as Corsica’s garden for its fig and olive orchards (the Romans called it the land of wheat and oil), the rugged Balagne region outside Calvi is filled with ancient communes called pièves, perched on hilltops and looking like they are right...

2 Place Paoli, 20220 L'Île-Rousse, France
Named for Corsica’s independence hero, Pasquale Paoli is considered one of the island’s best restaurants for its fine charcuterie platters and fresh lobster, grilled red mullet and house-smoked fish. Diners can pair dishes with wines from the...
Save Place
L'Île-Rousse’s market sits just off of the city's Pasquale Paoli square. Vendors can be found on the street and also in the market hall—which looks like a classical temple, or at least a converted civic building, with its colonnade of 21 pillars....

Cove Bay, Anguilla British West Indies 2640, Anguilla
I enjoyed this delicious snapper dish at Smokey's while listening to live music and sitting at a table on the beach. You can't go wrong with great food, fun music, and ocean views. This is a must-stop in St. Maarten.
