Bouches-du-Rhône: A Holiday between Land & Sea!

Summer is fast approaching! So, what if you took the time to organize your vacation now? Between land and sea, the Bouches-du-Rhône department in the south of France is the ideal destination for a holiday combining relaxation, nature, sport, but also recreation.

Featuring a breathtaking natural environment, the Bouches-du-Rhône department is home to many leisure activities, and imposes itself as a little corner of paradise. While nature lovers make a stop in the Camargue, in the midst of the black bulls, white horses and pink flamingos, the more adventurous may share the joys of climbing and paragliding on Mount Sainte-Victoire, which peaks at 1,011 meters of altitude.

Fancy some sea air and relaxation? Venture towards the “calanques” or rocky coves of Cassis! Here, the setting is idyllic, offering a magnificent view over the city of Marseille, which is sure to leave you speechless. After you have explored the area on foot or by bike, cool off at the pebble beach, accessible at the base of the cliffs. Wild and peaceful, it calls for calm and relaxation. Those nostalgic for village atmospheres, take a trip to Les Baux-de-Provence! There you will discover or rediscover the history of Provence and will be transported by the sound of cicadas and the breadth of the Alpilles landscape. Idyllic, right?
