The word ‘calanques‘, means coves; geological formations of valleys that are etched into mountain sides and which are partially submerged by the sea. They are often found along the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea. They are known in France and Corsica for the stunning vistas they provide along the Côte d’Azur and for the contrasting manner in which land meets sea.
The coves around the campsite
The Soleil campsite is found in the commune of La Ciotat, from where you can head out to enjoy the stunning, panoramic views of its neighbouring coves , alongside the fossilised rocks that are stacked one on top of the other to form the cliffs that make this region so beautifully unique. And to make the most of this spectacular opportunity, opt for a holiday at our campsite, which benefits from having numerous coves nearby. By renting a mobile home or bungalow you’ll have the perfect base from which to explore these stunning Mediterranean coves. Have a look at our page about renting a mobile home by the ‘Calanques’!
