The Côte Bleue

Between Calanques National Park and Camargue Regional Nature Park, the 'Blue Coast' promises a bracing breath of fresh air! By the sea, there is something for every taste, from the beautiful Sainte-Croix beach in Martigues to the quaint little beach at Fernandel calanque in Carry-le-Rouet. Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element in Sausset-lès-Pins where they can choose between learning to dive and having a go at stand-up paddleboarding. Of course, foodies are catered for too at Le Madrigal and Le Mange-Tout. Ready? Steady... Go!

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.

Contemporary art

For this weekend tour inspired by contemporary art, start with a visit to the MAC, Marseille's museum of contemporary art. Next, go and soak up the unique atmosphere at the Friche Belle de Mai cultural complex. For lunch, fresh and creative cuisine awaits you at the Grandes Tables de la Friche. Then it's onwards to the FRAC before a visit to the library archives. On day two, make your way to Aix-en-Provence where exploring the Fondation Vasarely will take up most of your morning. At midday, your appetite will be pleasingly sated at La Pioline before you venture off to Arles to visit the Fondation Van Gogh, a gem of an arts institution.
