The first: the islands

The first: the rocky cutting of its coast and some islands including Bendor. The island gained in the 50s by Paul Ricard, fully equipped according to his plans, has a charm. A shuttle connects it to the mainland in six minutes and landed there, one enters another world, an operetta blending Greece and Provence. The miniature port bounded by stone facades composed a village whose inhabitants are tourists, regulars every summer recreating their heavenly microcosm. We see them in shirt and thong, go to their room to the beach, strolling the passage in the artisan shops. Side face, civilization, loungers and shaded terraces; battery side, the open sea and rocky coves battered by the waves.
