Je recommande vivement cette randonnée avec Félix . Les calanques sont magnifiques mais avoir un guide c’est encore mieux. Car il nous permet de nous arrêter et prendre le temps de regarder les plantes, les rapaces… et de faire connaissance avec de nouvelles personnes.

Super rando dans les Calanques à la découvertes de différents points de vue sur la mer et les environs. (Magnifique🤩) J’ai apprécié les commentaires de Félix sur la végétation et l’histoire des Calanques. A profiter même en octobre, grand soleil, eau turquoise. Merci Felix ! 😊

Magnifique balade dans les calanques, entre brume et soleil. Félix connait très bien la faune et la flore, n'hésitez pas à lui poser des questions à ce sujet.
