Description of the stay
“In the vicinity of the sea, the strangest and the most demanding character of the Calanques can be found: not only for the magnificence of the landscape, but also for this eternal temptation of marine areas. The white rock walls make the depth of both the sky and the sea noticeable. Here exceptionally, both meet, tackle, and are joined together. This grouping is an exceptional monument.”
Gaston Rébufat in his book “Calanques”
