Seafood in Cap de Carqueiranne

Dreams of perfect Provençal holidays centre around places like L’Oursinado, a secluded fantasy of a restaurant tucked amongst the pines on a cliff above the tiny port of Les Oursinières. The sea views are pure Med magic, the cicadas sing in summer, and the seafood is sublime: roasted scallops, freshly grilled fish, stewed octopus and bouillabaisse (order in advance).

Afterwards, walk off your excesses on the Sentier Côtier (coastal path), high above the pounding waves of the Pointe du Bau Rouge.
