Culture & nature
Located off the coast of Marseille, Frioul offers a captivating foray into history, culture and nature. The Île d’If – the smallest island of the archipelago and nearest to Marseille – takes you on a deep dive into Alexandre Dumas’ world-famed novel « The Count of Monte Cristo ». It was here at the formidable Château d’If that his notorious Count was imprisoned. Hop back on the boat to Ratonneau and Pommègues, the archipelago’s other two islands, connected by a thin strip of land. As you head away from the port, you’ll adventure into wild and unspoiled scenery. Here, white fjords dotted with arid garrigue plunge into the pure and sparkling waters of the Med.
