La Montagnette and its monuments

La Montagnette is a low-altitude mountain in Bouches-du-Rhône set against dry and rugged terrain. It is replete with architectural gems to visit. Start the morning with a visit to the cryptoporticus in Arles. In Tarascon, take a tour of Saint Michel du Frigolet Abbey and Château du Roi René. Next head to Le Garde-Manger for lunch before venturing off to see Daudet's mills. When you reach Fontvielle, you can't miss Château Montauban and the Roman aqueduct. Finish on a high note at Montmajour Abbey.

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.

The seven wonders of the Bouches-du-Rhône

This tour showcases seven wonders around the Bouches-du-Rhône, easily covered in just half a day if you're riding in a helicopter or – and this is our personal recommendation – staggered over several days during your next trip to Provence! Starting in the north of the department, make your way slowly but surely down to Marseille. The first wonder is Les Baux-de-Provence, one of the prettiest villages in France. Then travel back in time at the Arles Amphitheatre before you are completely wowed by the Camargue countryside. Like Cézanne, you'll be enchanted by the sight of Mount Saint-Victoire before you head for a stroll along Cours Mirabeau, the main boulevard in the centre of Aix-en-Provence. End with a flourish in Marseille where its Old Port and calanques, those stunning natural creeks, are protected world heritage sites.
