Photo of the Month, September 2015

Cassis, 10:16am Since late August, the crowds of tourists are gradually disappearing from Marseille and Cassis’ hidden coves. And from the top of the Gineste road, nestled round a steep bend, a beautiful pastoral tableau – stretching between turquoise sea and verdant hills – spreads out before you. This sweet digression allows you to savor, for just a moment longer, the tranquility and the insouciance of the end of summer. You’ll remember with delight your last refreshing swims, for the duration of an ultimate summer escape in the shadow of Cap Canaille, before heading back to daily life.
