Itinéraire 2 : Des Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer à Arles

Loisirs et artisanat - Toute l'année

The heritage of Camargue is rich in preserved natural areas, historic sites and typical places of local culture. By linking Saintes-Maries in Arles, different stopovers are possible, such as the ornithological park of Pont de Gau, the home of Park natural Regional de Camargue or the castle of Avignon, all the more interesting that it combines the arts and architecture. Nature is present everywhere, spreading its rice fields and ponds, while emerge in places of mas and huts of guardians (blanched in milk of lime and umbrella Reed-walled houses) lurking at the end of a path. A stop at a small restaurant in the corner will be the opportunity to sample the gardianne of Bull. And the discovery of Arles take you perhaps to the Museum of Ancient Arles, in edge of Rhône.

La Trévaresse, abbey and vineyards

The hills of La Trévaresse are an ideal destination for getting to know Bouches-du-Rhône, from its sacred heritage to its sacred vineyards. After tasting honey produced at Rucher Salonais, head to La Roque d’Anthéron where you can visit Silvacane Abbey and Sainte-Anne de Goiron Chapel. Stop for lunch at Mas de Jossyl and then walk it off around Beaulieu and Rognes châteaux. Château de Calavon is along the wine route and is well worth a detour before you visit picturesque Lambesc and end the day at the sumptuous Château de Beaupré.

Essential Cassis

In a day, capture the essence of Cassis by taking a guided tour around the Provençal fishing village and visiting its museum. Potter around the boutiques and craft shops in the centre before finding a table on a terrace overlooking the sea. Cassis is especially proud of Calanques National Park, which you can explore on foot or by boat. Conclude your visit by meeting one or two Cassis wine producers. Less than an hour from the Marseille terminal, Cassis is also an essential destination for cruise tourists.
