Fontblanche - circuit VTT 1

Cycle Sport - Toute l'année - Free

Fontblanche, c'est une forêt merveilleuse. Notamment au Grand Caunet, perché sur les hauteurs de Ceyreste, où d'élégants pins d'Alep adoucissent l'ambiance. On y promène, ému, dans l'intensité poétique du paysage. Cet espace naturel préservé étendu sur plus de 850 hectares, à cheval sur les communes de Ceyreste et de Roquefort-la-Bédoule, est un des derniers domaines forestiers existant sur le littoral des Bouches-du-Rhône. Il n'en apparaît que plus précieux... Le Département en a fait l'acquisition entre 1974 et 1986, avant de l'aménager : tables en bois, bancs, balisage... Le tout sur trois sites principaux, également ouverts au public en période estivale. On peut aussi y admirer la chapelle Saint-André de Julhans, datée du XIIIe siècle, ainsi que des fours à chaux et à ciment. Circuit adapté handisport

Marseille, cultural city break – outside the city

This cultural tour around the streets of Marseille will give you the opportunity to admire the city's rich modern and contemporary art collections and steer you towards the roads less travelled. Begin with the Cantini Museum moments from the city's main shopping streets. Then follow the Corniche roadway to Borély's decorative arts museum. After stopping for lunch, leave the museum grounds in the direction of the MAC to see some 800 contemporary artworks. Next, make your way to the 'Maison du Fada', a local name for the 'Radiant City' imagined by the architect Le Corbusier and visit the MAMO on its roof. Finish at the Palais Longchamp.

Aix-en-Provence, by Ma Cigale est fantastique

The historic district of this Town of Art sets our cultural and living heritage to music. I am taking you on a journey through time. This is the perfect moment to discover some of the iconic squares and monuments in the town, to relax on a terrace, to fill your shopping basket at the Provencal market, to stock up on local delicacies and shop in some Made in Provence designer boutiques.

Essential Martigues

Your tour of Martigues is designed for lazy contemplation and new discoveries. It's a quiet town so you might be surprised to see such rich heritage there, from the Annonciade Chapel to Fort Bouc and the Ziem Museum. The 'Venice of Provence' has a strong artistic legacy and you won't fail to be enchanted by the legendary 'Miroir aux Oiseaux', the place that gave so much inspiration to great masters. All rounded off with a gourmet meal on the canal side, what more could you want?
