The Calanques are situated near Marseille, along more than 20 kms of the Mediterranean coast between the village of Goudes (neighborhood in south-west Marseille) and the town of Cassis.
The word “calanque” designates in the local dialect a valley cut by a river that is then flooded by the sea. This is one of the most remarkable sites in France, an area of major natural resources and sports activities for more than 1 million people each year.
In Cassis, the rugged landscape of the Calanques is of staggering beauty. In these enchanting surroundings one can drink a glass of white wine by the port, discover the coastline by boat or walk the path that goes through Cassis.
