Taste the Best of Provence Wine on the Mediterranean Coast

Start your full day tour excursion by taking the Gineste Road which follows the coast of the Mediterranean sea. Drive up to the Cap Canaille, the highest maritime cliffs in Europe which offer a stunning view over the Bay of Cassis. (Depending on the weather, the Gineste road and the access to Cape Canaille may be closed.)

Cassis is a small village famous for its fishermen port but mostly for the Calanques. A National Natural Park was created in 2012. Enjoy a guided tour in a wine property in Cassis facing the sea : see the vineyards, the cellar and taste Rosé and White wines of the property (In September, during the harvest, wine tasting only as the cellar will not be accessible for security reasons). Free time in the village for lunch (not included).

Explore the village of Le Castellet, one of the Var region’s top tourist attractions. This superb small feudal village perched on the top of its promontory will enchant you with its typical Provencal picturesque setting. Take the direction of a wine property on Bandol appellation, famous for its AOC Vins de Bandol and its olive oil. Have a walk in the domaine and see the vineyards and the centenary olive trees. Enjoy a wine and olive oil tasting in a private cellar. Drive back to Marseille. Comfortable shoes are recommended.
