A Village in the Heart of Provence
The 62th edition of the French Formula 1 Grand Prix will be taking place in the typical Provencal village of Le Castellet, tucked away between Marseille and Toulon. Make the most of your stay to immerse yourself in the mythical or more-unexpected charms of Provence. Climb to the top of the Sainte-Baume or Garlaban hills to revel in 360° vistas. Savour a glass of rosé or Pastis in the charming little ports of La Ciotat and Cassis, both set on the stunning “Route des Crêtes” coast road lined with vineyards. The Provencal coast overflows with many other enchanting spots too, such as the town of Bandol, also world-acclaimed for its wines. Before the Grand Prix blasts off on Sunday July 23nd, treat yourself to a stroll in the beautiful Provence Verte area, or a round of golf on the relaxing greens of the Golf Dolce Fregate in Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer. And once the hubbub of the race is over, why not enjoy a soothing country break at the heart of the magnificent Verdon Canyon?
