Sentier du Marais du Verdier

Walk - Toute l'année

Les marais du Verdier ont été acquis en 2003 par la Fondation Tour du Valat, centre de recherche pour la conservation des zones humides méditerranéennes. Le site est géré par l'Association « Les marais du Verdier » dans le cadre d'une démarche participative avec les habitants du Sambuc, hameau limitrophe. Les marais du Verdier sont constitués de quatre anciens bassins piscicoles totalisant 120 hectares et présentant des milieux diversifi és (roselières, scirpaies, prés salés, plans d'eau, bosquets de tamaris). Le Verdier se montre particulièrement attractif pour les oiseaux d'eau. Une plateforme d'observation et un observatoire facilitent la découverte des lieux.

Saint Rémy and its painters

Come and spend a delightful half-day in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a typical Provençal village in the Alpilles. Following in Van Gogh's footsteps, get to know the famous artist more intimately as you stroll around the streets and other locations he used to visit. While he only spent a year here, when he was a self-admitted patient at the Saint-Paul asylum, he left an indelible mark on the town and its history. Make time also to see the magnificent Provençal building that houses the Estrine Museum dedicated to the artist.

Alpilles, wine and oil in the Vallée des Baux-de-Provence

The Vallée des Baux is famed for its excellent wine and olive oil, so indulge yourself with both! A day in Les-Baux-de-Provence is a chance to get to know the land through the Baux-de-Provence and Alpilles appellations. From Domaine Dalmeran head out to see the mysterious Val d’Enfer which has inspired so many artists. At Mas Sainte-Berthe, take the time to feel the particular stony soil under foot before you enjoy delicious cuisine at La Cabro d’Or. The afternoon is dedicated to olive oil production with visits to Moulin Castelas and Mas de la Dame before finishing up at the Maussane cooperative. Time to hit the road!

Martigues and Marigagne by Ma Cigale est Fantastique

The towns of Marignane and Martigues, situated between land and sea, sit proudly on the banks of the étang de Berre. We have all heard of Marignane airport, but we know little about the town itself, which is an interesting place to visit. The town centre is currently being renovated. Martigues, Provence’s answer to Venice, is an island criss-crossed by canals that connect it directly to the sea. Together we will (re)discover the charms of these little-known towns.
