Les Calanques

The Calanques are a sinous series of wild fjords and rocky limestone cliffs following the coastline from Marseille to the seaside resort town and wine region of Cassis. Sormiou and Morgiou are two of the largest and most breaktakingly beautiful Calanques. Their unspoiled views expose the same secluded Méditerranean seascape that first lured and then embraced the Phocaeans, the daring Greek mariners.
