We head south through France to reach the Provencal resort town of Sanary-sur Mer for six nights.
Bandol & Cassis
Included excursion, taking us first to Bandol, famed for its fine red wines, often served cold. Wander the tree-lined promenade and admire the yachts in the bustling harbour. We continue to Cassis, which has managed to retain the old-world charm of a small fishing village – perfect for sitting with a coffee watching the world go by. We will later see the impressive inlets and white cliffs of the Calanques, standing high above the beautiful turquoise sea.
Included excursion to the delightful former capital of Provence, Aix-en-Provence, known as the ‘city of a thousand fountains’. Explore the medieval centre with its charming streets and lanes, leading to squares lined with grand buildings. This was the home to the artist, Paul Cezanne, and his legacy can be found throughout the city. Watch the world go by from a pavement café on the elegant tree-lined Cours Mirabeau.
Full day to relax and explore Sanary-sur-Mer, with its pretty pink and white buildings and medieval tower. This charming little seaside town boasts a pretty, colourful harbour, lined with cafes, restaurants and bars. Wednesday is market day - browse for souvenirs.

Join our optional excursion as we visit the playground of the rich. We head first to Saint Tropez, favoured resort and inspiration for so many artists. The town has managed to retain a charming ambience, despite its popularity. See the pretty Quai Jean-Jaurè, lined with pretty painted houses. For a contrast, we later visit Bormes-les-Mimoses, a medieval hill-top village, offering magnificent views across the coast. Explore the streets of the picturesque old town.
Included excursion to Hyères, regarded as one of the oldest resorts on the French Riviera. Stroll down the palm-tree lined promenade and admire the fine Belle Epoque architecture. Relax in the pretty gardens and explore the charming old town.

at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
