MEDITERRANEAN FRANCE – OUR “TOP SIX”

pastisUNMISSABLE PASTIS
Marseille, France. Despite being one of the hottest cities of the moment, the “capital” of the South continues to have a charm all its own. Nothing beats an aperitif with classic pastis to feel part of an Izzo novel.

Porquerolles, France.There is a tradition, reserved or almost reserved only for the initiated: when the sun begins to set, the rendezvous is in the dusty town square, challenging the island’s old men to the typical French boules. If you stand your ground, a glass of rosé will be waiting for you at the end.

Saint Tropez, France. The town most beloved by the stars of the 1960s still retains its charm today. Come on, give your lady a gift and choose a straw hat, strictly wide-brimmed. Brigitte Bardot teaches…

cruditeASTOUX ET BRUN

Cannes, France. Since 1953, it has been the place of choice for seafood lovers. The raw seafood appetizer is not to be missed, with a place of honor for shrimp and scampi. The more lustful should not miss the oysters. www.astouxbrun.com

ILES LES LERINS
Cannes, France. There are places that keep their charm intact while being just a few miles from the nightlife. As in the case of this archipelago opposite Cannes. Here you can moor in the natural channel separating the islands of Sainte Marguerite and Saint Honorat, with depths ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 meters. Although it is often very crowded in summer, its size ensures anchorage. Cars are prohibited in Sainte Marguerite, which ensures priceless silence. The island is also home to the Museum of the Sea, built in Fort Royal, a manor house built by the famous Cardinal Richelieu.

antibes-7GLUTTONOUS GALLEY

Antibes, France. A key port of call for filling the ship’s galley with real produce: the covered market in Antibes awaits gluttons every morning: ranging from fresh vegetables to salamis of all kinds. The more daring will choose a “stinky” cheese… Prices? Honest, for being on the French Riviera.
