Biarritz

Located between the Pyrénées mountains and the rugged coast, Biarritz is the largest resort on the French Atlantic seaboard. The gorgeous coastline, with wide sandy beaches, huge rocks, and crashing Atlantic breakers offers the best location for surfing in Europe.
A footbridge leads across to the Rocher de la Vierge with its statue of the Virgin, offering far-reaching views over the whole Basque coast and Biarritz.

Pyrénées

Spanning the frontier between Spain and France, from the Mediterranean sea to the Atlantic ocean, the Pyrenean countryside is characterized by its castles, lakes, rivers, wide green valleys and arid plateaus.
The gigantic 15th century castle of Foix with its three enormous towers is sitting on a promontory above the town of Foix.
Mirepoix is a traditional bastide town with a spacious main square surrounded by beamed 13th-15th century arcades and half-timbered houses.

Provence

From Marseille to Cassis, the coastline forms steep narrow inlets called "calanques" with their white cliffs reflecting in the turquoise sea.
Aix-en-Provence is a historic and elegant city, with graceful boulevards, shady squares, and beautifully carved stone fountains and has been called the city of a thousand fountains. The old town is a maze of narrow streets and squares with an abundance of restaurants and a vibrant café life.

Cassis

Surrounded by vineyards, flanked by monumental cliffs, with some lovely hidden creeks nearby, and nestled around a charming fishing village, Cassis may be the prettiest coastal town in Provence. Cassis is famous for its local dry white wine.
A gorgeous scenic road, the "corniche des Cretes", climbs to the Cap Canaille and then winds its way along the crest of the Soubeyran cliffs, overhanging the sea and offering an exceptional panorama.
