4. East Provence Coast: Cassis & Le Castellet
Your driver will pick you up at your hotel (Marseille, Aix-en-Provence or Cassis area) in the morning for a full day of sightseeing and experiences, in a luxury vehicle. You will be driven across beautiful, Provencal landscapes to the dramatic cliff-top village of Le Castellet, a perfect example of a fortifed town dating back to the 12th century. The village offers wonderful views from its fortified walls and look-out points in every direction, stunning medieval architecture and narrow, winding lanes combined with a charming setting for dining, cafés and for shopping for a multitude of local products, including gourmet olive oil, lavender soaps or wines from the nearby, highly-regarded, Bandol vineyards.You will then head to Cassis, a colorful and lively fishing port - perfect to catch the mediterranean way of life. After lunch, the final stop would be the famous Cap Canaille seacliffs, the highest in Europe, reached by taking the dramatic "Route des Crêtes" - one of the most scenic drives in France (note : this road may be closed at short notice in the event of strong winds). At the end of this well rounded day, your driver-guide will drive you back to your hotel.
