France – Cassis , Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur

This was a day trip by bus from Aix. We had never heard of Cassis before we arrived in Aix but we searched out places for a day trip and Cassis got the vote being oft described as the best kept secret of the South of France and a popular holiday destination. As usual we opted to visit on market day which was very pleasant although given this is a very small resort, the market itself wasn’t extensive. There’s a small beach here and we plumped to lunch with a bottle of wine, cheese, ham and bread purchased from the supermarket. All in all a very pleasant day although at one stage we thought it was all going a bit pear shaped when a thick fog suddenly engulfed the town – a very odd thing indeed but it cleared almost as suddenly as it arrived within half an hour. Here are some photos.
