Romain traces in Barbegal

History - Sciences - Technology - Dates and program to be confirmed

Greatest known concentration of mechanical power in the ancient world, aqueducts and the Barbegal Mills comprised a complex work, consisting of two parallel aqueducts, leading drinking water to the city of Arles from the Alpilles and which fed a mill capable of producing up to 4.5 tonnes of flour per day. This guided walk is therefore a way to enhance the discovery of this place rich in history while remaining in harmony with the nature that surrounds it.

Pays salonais with the family from soap to zoo

Pays Salonais makes a great family day out with plenty of fun and original things to do. After a deliciously simple lunch prepared by the chef at the Table du Roy, follow the road to the ruins of a village destroyed by an earthquake at the turn of the 20th century. In the afternoon, why not head to the zoo? It's the biggest one in the region and runs a programme to protect endangered species. Then make you way to the Marius Fabre Museum to learn all about how genuine Marseille soap is made.

The many faces of Camargue

See the many faces of Camargue on a tour that promises a refreshing change of scenery away from the usual tourist sites! Visit the Langlois Bridge, made famous in several paintings by Van Gogh, before exploring the ecosystem in Le Vigueirat. Then make your way to the Tour Saint-Louis and onwards to Napoleon beach where you can try your hand at kite surfing. In the afternoon, head to Domaine de la Palissade, an ideal destination to observe Camargue's wildlife. La Chassagnette in Arles is our recommendation for dinner where the original menu is prepared by a top chef.
