L'Estaque is a small fishing hamlet northwest of Marseille and practically unheard of to those not from these parts. The village's biggest claim to fame(apart from Robert Guediguian's films) is the profound influence it had on Cezanne and Renoir. Cezanne and his mistress lived on Place Maleterre and created a lot of his work in L'Estaque. Even if one isn't into art, it's great to wander around comparing his paintings with the actual sites at which they were painted. Famous for its Chichi fregi and panisses, one can sample these delicacies at the cafes by the sea and enjoy nature at its best without battling through crowds or having to pay through your nose. Take the autoroute D908 to head to this quaint little port.
