Caireval - circuit VTT 3

Cycle Sport - Toute l'année - Free

Fort de 150 hectares sur la commune de Rognes, le domaine de Caireval provient d'un legs établi au début du XXe siècle. Il atteste aujourd'hui de la qualité du patrimoine forestier départemental. Sous de fiers chênes et de grands pins dont les branches forment dans l'espace d'harmonieux dessins, les balades sont enchanteresses. Les clairières de cette version provençale de la forêt de Brocéliande s'ouvrent sur de magnifiques vues des Bouches-du-Rhône. Par temps clair, on va jusqu'à distinguer la mer.

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!

The calanques of Marseille, Cassis and La Ciotat

Calanques National Park is an essential destination for any trip to Provence. A day is almost not enough to explore this mineral- and vegetation-rich natural asset! The magic begins in Marseille, at the Sormiou calanque (creek) to visit on foot. Next set sail for a tour of other calanques by boat from where you truly get the measure of the huge rocks rising up from the turquoise waters. Then it's onwards to La Ciotat where you can wrap up the day at the charming Petit Mugel creek. En route, you can't fail to be captivated by the soaring cliffs at Cap Canaille. Note: depending on the weather conditions, this site may be closed for walking due to the risk of forest fires. Get instant weather reports using the free Myprovence Balade app.

Alpilles on the wine route

If you're visiting the Alpilles, then take advantage of the opportunity to travel the Provençal wine route. Go out to meet passionate winegrowers and their exceptional, often organic, wines. You'll get to try artisanal jams in Maussane before venturing onwards to Mas de Gourgonnier in the Baux-de-Provence appellation. Next, head to Domaine de Vallongue and its broken stones (IGP Alpilles). Le Lézard Gourmand will make a refreshing change for lunch before an afternoon spent at Domaine Valdition with its gourmet on-site shop.

Hoisted to heritage status in this city known for its gift of the gab, the movement has propelled a new generation of signature names to the front of the scene: the heirs have arrived.
