Experience the best of Provence and the French Riviera in 10 days. Visit Cannes, Nice, the hill-top villages of Luberon, Aix-en-Provence, and more regional highlights. Along the way, you’ll enjoy gourmet culinary tours, local culture, and charming boutique hotels.
The islands are renowned for their rocky beaches, hiking trails that wind through pine and eucalyptus forest, and sunny weather. They're also home to several fascinating historical and cultural sites. On Sainte-Marguerite, for example, you'll find the 17th-century Fort Royal, whose claim to fame comes from serving as the prison of the infamous Man in the Iron Mask for 11 years. Today, the building houses a maritime museum. Nearby, on Saint-Honorat, you can visit the expansive Lérins-Abbey, a Cistercian monastery that dates to the 11th century.
However, the real goal of today is relaxation. Enjoy sailing to different beaches, swimming in crystalline waters, and savoring food and drink aboard the sailboat. Novice sailors and experts alike can try their hand at several sailing maneuvers and get their sea legs under them before feasting on a picnic lunch.
