Seaside South of France

Interested in a Music and Markets Tour? We’d love to hear from you!
We’re looking ahead to Spring – how about the Prague Spring Festival in May?

I just can’t resist the markets…have to stroll through even if I don’t plan to buy anything! On Tuesdays the clothes and household goods line Cours Mirabeau – and oh what a difference from the bright colors of summer02171501 am market link to summer market post – remember THIS market stroll in August?08171401 baskets on cours sunday

In between searching out items for the new bathroom and kitchen, we make it to seaside Cassis, where the colors are as vivid as ever.02171501 Cassis portBack in Virginia it’s snowing again, but here in the south of France it’s still dine-al-fresco weather,02171502 Cafe Cassis

and any time of year is good for a boules game.02171502 Cassis BoulesEnjoying the sunshine, we walk out to the lighthouse – have we ever done this before?02171501 Cassis We don’t think so…we usually spy it from the sea as we head out with our Music and Markets guests to see the fjord-like Calanques in between Cassis and Marseilles.
To the east of town, ruddy Cap Canaille (cinnamon) glows over the water. 02171501 Cassis Cap CanailleTilting our faces to the sun, we soak it in, enjoying every minute.
