The Côte d’Azur and Marseilles for less

The French Riviera is one of Europe’s ritziest strips, but even around Cannes and St Tropez there are spectacular, affordable distractions.

On the coast south of Marseille, high promontories known as calanques rise from the electric-blue sea. A national park since 2012, its cliff-top trails, secret coves and powder-white beaches cry out for exploration (calanquesparcnational.fr). Trail access is restricted in summer because of fre risks; check with the Marseille tourist offce (marseille-tourisme. com) before beginning a hike.


An intermittent coastal path runs along most of the French Riviera, leading to rocky perches and hidden bays. One of its loveliest stretches runs east and south from St Tropez around its peninsula to the beach at Cavalaire-sur-Mer. In St Tropez the yellow-fagged path starts just east of the harbourside Tour du Portalet. The tourist offce (sainttropeztourisme.com) has maps with distances and walking times, so it’s possible to tackle bite-sized chunks if you don’t have the time or energy for all 22 miles.
