Words cannot describe how breathtaking the Calanques are. We have been fortunate to be staying right in the middle of them for a week, but each time we look out from the terrace we are stunned by the beauty. Deservedly a UNESCO world heritage site

You just have to go. The road is fine, just drive slow, as everyone does. The scenery is so spectacular that people find a place to deposit their car (I wouldn’t call it parking) and then walk along the road to take photos adding to...More
