Great mountain and sea views , don't miss!

A great road going out of Cassis. A few view points on the way overlooking the bay of Cassis. Stop and don't miss. One of the nicest ways in the area .

I drove here without expecting the drive to be similar to gorge du verdon. Winding narrow bendy roads. It's pretty scary for me who has vertigo. It's winter season so I can afford to go slow without many cars behind me. If you are not confident of driving such roads, start your journey towards la ciotat rather than the other... More

An amazing route, 10 km long, many curves on the way and many places to stp and adore the view. Nevertheless, I must admit that I liked better the route with the same name in the gorge of Verdon.

Amazing 360 degree views. Relatively easy drive up and only about 10 minutes from Cassis.Take a picnic perhaps but definitely take some water with you. Worth a peak

We have done it from Cassis, at the sunset. AMAZING. Take your time and stop at every view point; each and every one offers you new perspective to Cassis, to the coast and to the sea. If you are comeing from Toulon you might get out of the highway at Ciotat in order to acceed Cassis and not to pay... More

It was our favourite part of trip down to Provence area. Absolutely stunning views and Cap Canille is a must - the highest open cliffs in France. We would do it again!

We traveled this route as the sun was going down so the views were dramatic and there were few cars and no busses. We were told though that during the day when it is busy there are professional thieves that break into cars even if you are gone for only a few minutes.

Driving along this mountain road are absolutely spectacular panoramic views of the Mediteranean coastline and mountains. Several vista points along the way alow your step out and soak the scenery. Unlike other mountain roads in the area that feature a single lane for two-way traffic, this was a very leisurely drive.

We drove this route from la ciotat to cassis and were very impressed. The scenery is absolutely fantastic and there were a number of scenic stops overlooking the calanques.
