Head to Wooden Gallery for monumental chandeliers, daring photo prints and cabinets full of quirky curiosities. This art and design emporia is part of a new retail hub located under historic arches of the striking Cathedral de la Major that looms over the waterfront. woodengallery-concept.com

Joli Rouge (72 Rue d'Aubagne. tel: 06 26 92 78 39) Rummage around in this atmospheric brocante (junk shop), filled to the rafters with quirky objet d'art, 1950s furniture and irresistible vintage crockery, before pulling up a stool at its retro mini-bar that serves natural wines to thirsty bargain-hunters.

Labo Life Store (5 Place de la Corderie, tel. 04 91 59 16 06) This trendsetting design store stocks an eclectic array of fabulous ceramics, decorative crafts and one-of-a-kind clothing items that mix modern and vintage styles so irresistible you'll want to check in another suitcase to take it all home.

Stretch the legs with a visit to the calanques, a series of limestone cliffs overlooking the ocean. Your best bet is to start at the pretty seaside town of Cassis and follow the signs, though it can be difficult to escape the lure of the almond croissants in the numerous bakery windows.
