Calanque bleue by train swim
- Go to Saint Charles station because it is by train that we will reach the coves of the blue coast through tunnels and viaducts. - We reach the small port of Ensues la Redonne at the start of the customs path which we cover to reach the beach of Figuiére and its almost perfect cove. Swimming in blue waters. - We continue towards the double cove of Mejean and its micro village. - This is where the wild coast begins with its cliffs and superb marine reefs. We arrive at the cove of Everine facing the island of the same name. The place is ideal for mask and snorkelling, among the most beautiful seabed in the region. - Finally it is the Jonquier cove and its turquoise waters to arrive at the small port of Niolon clinging to the cliff, perfect place for a refreshment before taking our little train back to its improbable station. Other things to note It is better to know how to swim, take enough water! Otherwise the ride does not require special skills, the cumulative elevation positive / negative is around 350 meters more a long ride than a hike. Fans of organic green clay baths with sea salt will be delighted!

Bordeaux Private Wine Tours-Saint Emilion
My private wine tours feature visits to world’s famous Saint Emilion vineyard in a very cozy and friendly atmosphere. I will meet you at Quais Deschamps at 9am and will drive you through Pomerol passing by "the gem of the appellation", famous Petrus. Our first visit will be at a family-run estate, where you will discover the vineyards, vat rooms, learn about wine making process, all followed by wine tasting (2-3 wines). Next we’ll take a walk in the beautiful, picturesque medieval village of Saint Emilion (UNESCO World Heritage Site) discovering its main monuments. You will also have a chance to sample Saint Emilion’s speciality - the delicious macarons. We’ll then make a stop at a local bakery for a quick lunch/snack (not included in the price) and will head to the second chateau for a shorter visit and another beautiful wine tasting (2-3 wines). I will guide you throughout this trip by giving you lots of interesting information that will help you understand the region and its wines. We will return to Bordeaux (Place de Stalingrad) at around 2:30-3pm. Other things to note: I'd highly appreciate the understanding from single travelers that organizing a tour for only 1 person is very complicated for myself and our hosts in the wineries and requires putting much more effort and costs for almost 0 revenue. Please contact me in advance. Thank you!
Catamaran sail ride in the heart of Calanques National Park
Come and sail through the bay of Marseille and to the heart of Parc des Calanques ! Wind, sea state and traffic will dictate the pace and itinerary to reach a nice mooring . You will appreciate the breathtaking landscape, the comfort of the boat and the friendship spirit. We'll enjoy swimming and lunch, SUP, snorkeling and sometimes cliff jumping if you wish ! The afternoon will be devoted to chill out and/or some more sailing on the way back to port… Please bring a small amount of food and drink you'd like to share with the others. So will I. Don't forget sun protection (cream, glasses, cap, (windproof) hat, ...), swimwear and towels. You'll be able to rinse off with fresh water after getting out of the water… Please note : This is not a "tick that postcard" tour with specific places visited but a sailing trip under sail where slow pace, contemplation and awareness are privileged. It's a "let's go sailing as friends in Marseille would" proposition. Your disposition to be aware of the environment in the shade of the sails, in silence and to meet people on board, will also make the difference. We like to meet foreigners, talk or stay alone but we all love Med blue waters, sun, nature and fine food. Come ! We'd rather be sailing !
Catamaran à voile dans l'Archipel du Frioul
Vous embarquerez sur un catamaran de 12 m avec François et prendrez la mer pour une navigation sous voile, moteurs éteints, pour goûter à la poésie de glisser sur l'eau en silence. Vous pourrez si vous le souhaitez, barrer, participer aux manoeuvres et apprendre le fonctionnement d'un bateau à voiles et sa sécurité. Après 1h30 environ de route, le bateau mouillera l'ancre dans une calanque de l'archipel du Frioul en fonction de la direction du vent ce jour-là et de la tranquillité du mouillage. Nous partagerons un verre et pourquoi pas… un bain de mer. Vous pourrez pratiquer le paddle ou le farniente. Note : Ce n’est pas une visite de lieux précis mais une navigation sous voile où la contemplation, le lâcher prise et l’écoute sont privilégiées. C'est une expérience unique sur un magnifique bateau, dans une ambiance chaleureuse et un cadre extraordinaire. À l'ombre des voiles et en silence, votre disposition à vous émerveiller de la beauté de la mer et des paysages, de la rencontre des gens à bord, fera la différence. Le skipper pro fera tout pour que ce soit réussi et ça fonctionne en général à merveille ! La mer rend heureux, permet de se rencontrer soi-même et les autres. Nous serons de retour au port du Mucem.
