  1. Totul este poezie: şi ceea ce ai scris tu, dar şi acele peisajele minunate, spectaculoase!

  2. A captivating and beautiful slide show. The Mediterranean seems to have the scent of romance in the air. Regards, Ian aka Emu

  3. There are many wonderful areas within France, Melanie, and this spot must be among its most beautiful ones. Happy Sunday!

    • yes, indeed… France has been the most visited country in 2013 and Paris has just become the Americans’ first European destination after years of “London hegemony”! But your huge and vast homeland is an absolute must-visit, too… Thanx for stopping by, have a sunny day and a positive week! 🙂

  4. Soupir. Comment belle est la France! Photos merveilleuses. Bon week-end!

  5. ¡Que bonito compartir las bellezas de tu Francia! 🙂

  6. Corsica, beautiful… and the water. Fantastic slideshow. I was there many years ago with my “boyfriend” I had in Monte-Carlo… we went on yacht to Corsica. That was when I was young and beautiful… now I’m only young. *smile* – 1973.

  7. très magnifique, beautiful pictures Mélanie… thank you for making me travel today, I feel peace and tranquility when I see them…

  8. Beaux endroits! Les images et celles du lien sont un véritable paradis sur terre.

  9. Des vues magnifiques! De toute façon, la France a été déclarée la première destination touristique du monde: http://www.levoyageur.net/article-les-pays-les-plus-visites-dans-le-monde-191.html#.UxCrX4Wqtnk

    C’est également le mérite des services touristiques, je suppose, et pas seulement des paysages. Une très bonne fin de semaine dans le plus visité pays du monde! 🙂 Bisous!

    • merci, “copila mea”! 🙂

      da, sigur ca stiam despre link si cum precizam mai jos: Parisu’ a devenit prima destinatie europeana pentru americani, dupa ani de “hegemonie” londoneza! 🙂 à propos des “services touristiques”, j’imagine que indirectement ou inconsciemment tu as pensé à ceux de Roumanie… mais comparons ce qui est comparable! 😉

      oui, je suis fière et honorée de vivre en France, ma patrie d’adoption! have a pleasant evening and hugs back… 🙂

  10. Tu sais, Mélanie, une de tes photos montre “Le doigt de Dieu” et “Le trou du diable”… C’est une toponymie sans retenue, semble-t-il. Je garde un merveilleux souvenir de cette ballade en bateau au départ de Cassis… Bonne journée! Hervé

  11. Love the colours of the sea and the coastline is so attractive.

  12. Utterly Mesmerizing Pictures…

  13. Spectacular scenery! Great photos. We went to Nice a couple years ago, it’s not as beautiful as this, but the rock mountains remind me CinqueTerre in Italy.

  14. eu trebuie să vizitez! 🙂

  15. Un autre coin magnifique…

  16. So beautiful… I hope this area was spared the horror of war 70 years ago…

  17. It looks wonderful! I looked at the link, too! 🙂 Marseille is on my list, for “some day”.

    • Thanx, Jo! last year, France was(again!) the most visited country in Europe and Paris has become Americans’ first European destination after years of “London hegemony”! 🙂

  18. Yes, France the Beautiful! Excellent set, this one by the sea. Thanks so much, Melanie, for sharing this! Take care! 🙂

  19. C’est de toute beauté Mélanie !
    Bonne nuit !

  20. Un posto stupefacente che conosco e ho visitato perché una mia zia vive poco fuori Marseille. Grazie. Sherabonnenuit
