Istres by Ma cigale est fantastique
The "Porte d’Arles" gives us direct access to the historical centre, which is well worth a visit. I suggest starting by the Tourist Office. This decidedly contemporary building reflects the spirit of the town at the crossroads of tradition and modernity. We will do a little shopping and then take a cultural and gourmet break. We will take a quiet stroll in the Etang de l’olivier gardens before going the other side to the Etang de Berre for a bite to eat.
Essential Salon-de-Provence, a soap opera
This is a simple itinerary designed to stimulate your senses. The first stops on the tour are the Marius Fabre and Rampal Latour soap factories, two Provençal institutions. Salon-de-Provence was also the one-time home of Nostradamus, the famous seer and now the name of an excellent chocolate makers in the town. At Château de l’Empéri, history buffs will get a thrill brushing their hands over ancient stones. Lastly, after a fancy lunch at Mas du Soleil, it's onwards to Au Clair des Fontaines for a little refreshment. Follow the guide!
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.
When we talk about the South of France, what's the first thing we think of? The MEDITERRANEAN SEA! (and the sun of course – it's all part of the package).
