La Ciotat non-smoking beach

There are lots of reasons for holidaying in the seaside resort of La Ciotat, the birthplace of cinematography where Louis and Auguste Lumière shot their first film: L'entrée du train en gare de La Ciotat. Squares, chapels and ancient buildings reflect a rich cultural past.

And now the resort has another claim to fame – the first non-smoking beach in Europe! Let's hope more resorts follow La Ciotat's lead!
