The islands of Porquerolles and Port-Cros,
two genuine paradises, can be found at the Sourth of Hyères (near Toulon).

If you navigate towards Marseille,
you can find the Presqu’île of Giens, the Cape Sicié, the island of Embez,
the Calanques of Cassis, the islands of Frioul (the castle of If), or the archipelago of Riou.

If you navigate towards Nice,
in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, it is recommended to put in at the original “city on water”of Port-Grimaud,
a very picturesque village created by the architect François Spoerry.
You really want to take some time on the islands of Lérins (Sainte-Marguerite and Saint –Honorat),
located south of Cannes, far away from the city noises.
