The Bouches-du-Rhône: Discover a Unique Heritage!

Climbing, paragliding, the sea, beaches and wild landscapes in their natural state... From Marseille to the Camargue via Arles, Saint-Rémy de Provence or Sainte-Victoire, the Bouches-du-Rhône departments offers visitors a real taste of paradise...
By Justine Fiordelli

The tour begins in Marseille, this town in the south of France where life is so good! Here you’ll enjoy the aperitif, Pastis, walks to the edge of the Old Port, monuments and the many small cobbled alleyways. The charm takes effect immediately and throughout the year tourists are attracted by a festive atmosphere, but which is also conducive to relaxation and idleness. Just as appealing, Arles is recognized as a city with a foot in art and culture. Walk in Vincent Van Gogh’s footsteps, visit the museums, and stroll through the La Roquette neighborhood... The program promises to be rich and varied.

Just a few kilometers from Arles, the Camargue is reserved for nature lovers, offering visitors wild landscapes as far as the eye can see! Between horseback riding amongst sea and lagoons, visiting the dykes, the bird park or going hiking, you’ll recharge your batteries in no time. Near Saint-Rémy de Provence, another town in the Bouches-du-Rhône, take your pick: sit in a cafe and stock up on vitamin E, while gourmets will choose to stop at the excellent master chocolate maker Joël Durand’s shop. Finally, for thrill seekers, head to the Sainte-Victoire mountain where you will discover the joys of climbing and paragliding. What a memorable stay!
