It takes barely 1h to arrive in Cassis. A nice occasion for you to hear more about Provence and taking time to admire the magnificent landscape around: sharp hills, exuberant vineyards, colorful villages, olive groves and the typical Provencal garrigue.

Calanques de Cassis

Welcome on board for a cruise to the famous Calanques. They represent a long stretch of coastline indented by a series of narrow inlets walled by limestone cliffs. You will be fascinated by the narrow bays of fine white sand meeting warm cobalt shallows, surrounded by towering pale bright cliffs bearing sparse precariously sited trees. Magical and enchanting coves are a paradise for scuba diving, climbing, hiking, discovery of the fauna and flora.

Guided tour of Cassis

The harbor of Cassis snuggles at the bottom of a steep bowl of land surrounded by lush vines and pine trees. The town is dominated by the Cap Canaille, 400 m high. Cassis is a very ancient fishing port, as well as a coral trade counter. In the 18th century, the village was rebuilt on the old ruins, resulting in a more regular layout than most other medieval villages. A walk through the old village streets will reveal old fountains, open-air artists market and some nice old buildings, some dating back to the 16th century, and some restored with the colorful pastels of Provence. Cassis is also famous today for its local wine, mainly whites, but also rosé and red.

Guided tour and wine tasting

Laid in the heart of the Provencal vineyard, Cassis offers several possibilities to taste the best of local terroir. The village is famous to be the first AOC (controlled area appellation) created in Provence in 1936. 200 hectars are producing red, rosé and white wines, based on mourvèdre, grenache, cinsault, marsanne and clairette grapes. The perfect occasion the have a break before lunch.

Lunch

After this full of surprise morning, you deserve a lunch. Facing the sea from the harbor of Cassis, you will enjoy the genuine Provencal cuisine and local sunny wines, through this typical charming restaurant we selected for you.

Bandol Vineyards Sightseeing

The wine region of Bandol overlooks the sea. This sightseeing is the best occasion to see mourvèdre, cinsault and grenache, but also carignan and syrah grapes as far as your eyes can see. The Bandol AOC covers 8 villages representing around 1500 hectares on silicon & limestone soils. Thanks to warm weather and wind, intensity of red colours and density of tannins are the keywords to characterize red Bandol wines as well as spicy flavor and little red fruits note can define rosé Bandol wines. Clairette, ugni blanc and bourboulenc grapes offer delightful white wines.

Oil and Wine producer

Olives and grapes are since the age of time major emblems of Mediterranean culture. Olive oil was actually nicknamed “the green gold”. Phenicians, Greeks and Romans introduced and developed olive oil and wine production, making Provence worldwide known for it. Still today, this trade activity is very flourishing. We selected for you a splendid Provencal Domaine, totally favorable to discover two of the main taste ambassadors of southern France. Enjoy this last step before turning back home.
