Itinéraire 3 : Boucle d’Arles à la plage par Salin-de-Giraud

Loisirs et artisanat - Toute l'année

The favorable city deserves that attention before winning the surrounding countryside. Stroll in the neighborhood of Arugula or visit the Museon Arles can mark a good starting point. Then roads progressed through the Camargue landscapes with its rice fields, marshes marshes and canals. Delta solar and wild, the Camargue has been shaped by the encounter of two giants, the Mediterranean and the Rhône. Étang de Vaccarès in the marshes of Romieu, the road leads to Salin-de-Giraud. The city was built to accommodate the workers of the exploitation of salt. The city is adjacent to grey salt dunes, the slides and the cars. This route then leads on the beaches of Piemanson, where lurks another vast universe. Then return to Arles will occur along the Grand Rhone.

The leading lights in architecture

For your architecture-themed day, this tour will show you buildings and works designed by leading lights including Jean Nouvel, Franck Gehry, Rudy Ricciotti, Stefano Boeri, Le Corbusier, Kengo Kuma, Pouillon, Vasarely, Tadao Endo and others. It will take you to the MuCEM and its amazing footbridge before you get to visit the Villa Méditerranée that is half suspended over the Mediterranean Sea. When lunchtime arrives, we suggest you head to Le Ventre de l’Architecte (literally 'the architect's belly'!) in the Cité Radieuse designed by the great Le Corbusier. The FRAC and its fascinating façade is the next stop on the tour. The Regards de Provence Museum is an example of a very successful restoration while the luminescent modular components which make up the Fondation Vasarely are simply mesmerising. Lastly, conclude your tour at Château La Coste, where architecture meets wine.

Flavours of Provence

Gourmets and foodies from all over flock to Provence which has assembled all the ingredients for an exciting culinary journey. In this part of the world, the vineyards along the Cassis wine route graze the Mediterranean Sea. In Aix-en-Provence, the almond scent of calisson sweets mingles with the orange blossom of Navettes de Marseille biscuits. Rouille brings colour to bowls of bouillabaisse while olive oil made in the Alpilles is a staple on every table! Not to forget rice and meat from Camargue. A gourmet tour of Provence promises an epicurean feast.

Aix-en-Provence, cultural city break

Cézanne's studio is your first window into this weekend before you head off to take a tour of the more iconic sites in Aix such as the Pavillon Vendôme and the tapestry museum. There's a wonderful mix of the old and new as you alternate between the Fondation Vasarely, the sumptuous town houses in the Mazarin district (Caumont, Granet, Gallifet) and the peace and calm around the fountain on Place d'Albertas. In between art museums, enjoy a feast for the eyes and the palate at Mickaël Féval, a real treat for the senses!
