Marseille, the best of French coastal city surrounded by beautiful Mediterranean Sea. I had a great Sea food that included fried fish, Clams and French wine.

Nice is a little mix of sugar, spice and everything 'nice'. It is appropriate for everyone - right from those looking to spend a few days in the lap of luxury to shoestring backpackers looking to explore the south of France. The pebble beaches look almost heavenly, if not entirely comfortable and the nightlife is fantastic. Right from open-air markets and musical performances to a promenade right out of your dreams, Nice is the ultimate getaway.

Perhaps one of Grassee's main touristy attractions is the Parfumerie Fragonard. Grasse has been a perfume town ever since the 1600s, and today as the world's perfume capital its reputation speaks for itself. Its sister perfume factory is located in Eze. If perfume isn't your forte, then you can set off to explore and discover the rest of this historic town.

We took a little weekend trip for our birthday in October, which was outside of tourist season and so a little cooler of course than it would have been, but Cassis stays top of the list as one our favourite parts of France. Exciting food, stunning walks and a lovely atmosphere make Cassis a highlight of our French year of adventure. In sunnier times I imagine it would be even better and we could have happily spent several more days here walking, eating and sunning ourselves in Cassis.
