Save Place
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...
Save Place
13260 Cassis, France
Of the dozens of calanques — limestone cliffs and inlets — tracing the Mediterranean shoreline between Cassis and Marseille, the Calanque d'En-Vau is the most beautiful. On any given day from May through September, the beach and the calanques are...

Save Place
06360 Èze, France
This small peaceful medieval village has shops, restaurants, and galleries on the corner of every alley. Came across this charming little wine bar late at night and decided to pay a visit the next day. We went there again, only to learn that the...
Save Place
Lake of Sainte-Croix, France
Driving in the mountains and seeing gorges in France is an unforgettable experience. Here is a beautiful lake at the debut of spring, probably just a little too cold for swimming in.
