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!

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.
