A gastronomic Tour of Berre Lagoon

This tour is focused around Berre lagoon, the second-largest salt water lake in Europe. Located west of Marseille, it's a fantastic spot for checking out local producers and tasting what the land has to offer. From organic wines to artisanal ice creams, all the products are made in Provence. There is plenty to pack in so we suggest you pick your favourites from our gourmet suggestions or extend your stay to stagger the visits over two days.

Essential La Ciotat – the cradle of cinema

For your one-day tour of La Ciotat, you can relax on the Grande Plage or the beach at Figuerolles, a popular spot for locals that you can't leave without seeing. Cinema lovers should head to the Eden Théâtre, famous for screening one of the first films produced by the Lumière brothers. The birth of film is also honoured at the Musée Ciotaden, a museum that retraces the town's history and the traditions of Provence. After an excellent lunch at Le Vin 7, potter around the shops at the Old Port. Later, make your way to the Ile Verte and Parc du Mugel for stunning views. Just don't forget your camera!

Walking tour in Arles by d'Anaïs et Pedro

Arles, a magnificent town with not only an exceptional ancient heritage but much more to discover. This corner of paradise in our beautiful Provence region combines boutiques, lovely terraces for refreshments, museums and lots more hidden treasures! You only have to look up as you wander through the town to observe its unusual architecture; incidentally all its monuments were listed by the UNESCO World Heritage committee in 1981.
