    Nationalpark Calanques

    October 19, 2017 in France

    Nach nur einem Tag Pause trieb es uns zu einer Wanderung in den Nationalpark Calanques mit seiner wunderschönen Felsküste. Startpunkt war das schöne Hafenstädtchen Cassis. Nach einer halben Stunde bergauf waren wir im Nationalpark Calanques angelangt.

    Für unsere „Bergziege“ Daggett waren die Felsen genau das Richtige und er war uns immer einen Schritt voraus. Denn wir mussten uns des Öfteren auf unsere Tritte auf dem steinigen und zum Teil sehr steilen Untergrund konzentrieren. Die Landschaft war wirklich wunderschön und wir mussten immer wieder Pausen machen, um alles auf Fotos festzuhalten und Milla nicht die ganze Zeit zu tragen. Nach ca. 4 Stunden und 12 km waren wir mit schweren Beinen wieder in Cassis und gönnten uns zur Belohnung noch einen leckeren Crêpes mit Nutella am Hafen - lecker 😋Read more

    After not such a good day the day before we couldn't have asked for better day today. It was yet another HOT day into the 30's and as we headed west along the coast we came to the little town of Sanary Sur Mer and found parking beside the beach. We wandered back towards the town and stumbled upon the Saturday market. It was amazing - full of all the fruit, vegetables, fish, meat and nuts you could imagine and a whole lot more. It was right down beside the wharf and the little fishing boats were tied up with a stall beside them selling what they had just brought in.

    There was a lovely friendly and relaxed vibe about the place as we wandered around and we bought fresh fruit, a lovely looking seafood concoction, olives and bread. From there we continued on to our destination for the day, Cassis.

    Cassis is absolutely gorgeous. It is a little seaside village which has natural attractions that attract thousands of tourists however it's very difficult to access by vehicle so we booked into the camping ground there and walked down the fairly steep roads to the town through the narrow cobbled streets.

    One of the main attractions are the many coves along the coastline west of Cassis and they are best seen by boat. So we joined a tour boat and spent the next hour and a half spellbound by the natural beauty of the scenery, the sheer cliffs, the blue blue water, and the lifestyle of the local people. The photos in no way do it justice. One of the beaches was named by the National Geographic magazine as one of the top 100 beaches in the world. There were swimmers, kayakers and heaps of boats full of people enjoying the crystal clear water. High points on rocks or rocky outcrops on cliffs were used by groups of young men for divng or jumping off. They looked so high up!

    That night we came back down to the town for dinner. It was still 28 degrees so it was lovely to sit at one of the many restaurants and watch the water and the people as we enjoyed a leisurely meal. We wandered around the narrow streets as well as the waterfront and there must have been dozens of little restaurants even tiny ones scattered here and there. It was such a pleasant evening. If you are ever in the area this is a must to visit.

    Cassis liegt im Westen der Cote d'Azur, eingerahmt von Buchten mit Frankreichs höchsten Steilküsten, den Calanques. Bootstouren in die Buchten starten direkt am alten Hafen. Wer die Küste lieber von oben bewundern möchte, nimmt den "petit train",der an der Touristen-Information neben dem Hafen losfährt.
