Le Castellet

One of the most beautiful medieval villages of Provence and home to famous artists and artisans, le Castellet is only a few steps from the Circuit Paul Ricard – one of the most famous racetracks in the world. A few kilometres from le Castellet sits the picturesque fishing port of Cassis, lined with shops and restaurants. From here it is possible to visit the spectacular Calanques, the famous cliffs and inlets that line the coast all the way to Marseille. www.guides-calanques.com
