Sur les pas du GR2013 : de Pont-de-Joux à Valdonne

Hike - Toute l'année

En partant du Pays d'Aubagne, le GR2013 traverse le Domaine Départemental de Pichauris.
Ce Parc Départemental a été acquis en 2006. Situé au coeur des Massifs de l’Etoile et du Garlaban, ses 1 360 hectares parcourent le paysage si cher à Pagnol. Ce Parc présente un double visage, d’un côté marqué par les conséquences de l’incendie de 1997 sur l’Etoile, de l’autre riche d’une garrigue à chênes kermès, à thym et à romarin.

Au coeur de cette propriété, une traditionnelle bastide imposante par sa superficie qu’il faudra faire revivre et la Bastidonne qui sera mise en valeur grâce au sylvo-pastoralisme. Ainsi, ce décor teinté de nostalgie d’une Provence rurale offrira aux adeptes des loisirs pleine nature des souvenirs inoubliables grâce à un panorama sur toute la Provence.
