Essential istres

A free afternoon is all you need to discover the very best of Istres. After a delicious lunch at La Table de Sébastien, potter about Istres' historic and typically Provençal old town. A visit to Saint-Sulpice Chapel and the Centre d'Art Contemporain will get you in the artistic mood. While a leisurely stroll around the Jardins de l’Étang is the perfect end to the day. We guarantee you'll leave a little piece of your heart in this fortified town!

The Mediterranean, from beach to creek

Do you love the seaside and the great outdoors? Wild countryside bathed in sunlight? Then this tour was made for you! Over three days, take a tour of unspoilt places that have earned Provence's coastline such a fantastic reputation. Begin at the immaculate and practically deserted Camargue beach before continuing your trip with an invigorating stroll around the Côte Bleue Marine Park. Then cap off your long weekend between Marseille, Cassis and La Ciotat with a tour of the calanques (creeks) including the lovely and secluded En-Vau. A fresh breath of sea air!

Essential Saint Rémy - Provençal charm

It's worth devoting an entire day to Saint-Rémy to fully immerse yourself in the tastes and culture of Provence: from wine (Château Romanin) and olive oil (Moulin du Calanquet) to the region's art and history (Saint-Paul de Mausole Monastery and Glanum). In the heart of the Alpilles, the town, put on the map for being an important source of inspiration to Vincent Van Gogh, is replete with treasures. Lovers of old buildings will adore the town centre and ancient ruins. And foodies will be in their element at Les Terrasses de l’Image that serves original, local fare.
