Description

While larger Mediterranean cities and celebrity hot spots may get lots of hype, the glistening azure coastline and rainbow-hued houses of Cassis are no less eye-popping. This quiet seaside town remains a working fishing port, which makes it all the more appealing to us as the highlight of our tour — we like quiet, character-filled places that haven’t surrendered to time or progress or the pressure of hectic modern lives!

The route to Cassis is truly as blissful as the destination. Imagine riding by a mountain cloaked in holy legend (Sainte Baume), past the sunny yellow buildings of Aix-en-Provence, through scenes captured so beautifully by Cézanne (Mont Saint-Victoire), and Van Gogh during his most productive years (the Alpilles).

Consider this our official warning: many unsuspecting cyclists and would-be artists have come to explore this glorious region and wound up quitting their day jobs, packing up their lives, and buying a fixer-upper farmhouse or seaside cottage. After a week of riding here, you may be compelled to follow suit!
