🏖️ Calanques

May 2018

We packed all our climbing gear and flew from Montreal to Lyon. We then drove all the way south, which marks the start of the adventure. The first stop is in Gordes.


Then, Sénanque Abbey.

La gang en Provence.

Followed by Vauvenargues.

Ruby sur cascade et violettes.

We enjoy a little apéritif at our Airbnb in Aix-en-Provence.


The next day, we visit the Clos Sainte Magdeleine vineyard and winery, in Cassis. While Cassis is renowned for its white wines, my favorite here was the rosé which was extremely mineral, with tasty notes of grapefruit.
