La Ciotat by Les Marseillaises
With its rocky creeks, the revival of its town centre and its maritime history, La Ciotat is a destination that combines the art of living, a natural landscape and new locations that are overflowing with history. In the town that has can be considered the birthplace of cinema and pétanque, you are sure to find some very good reasons for visiting! We are talking about La Ciotat, this typical Mediterranean town with magnificent beaches and creeks, where the noise of the shipbuilding yards ceased to exist a few years ago. Today, there is not only the coastal scenery to enjoy there is also the renovation of the ancient district of La Ciotat – or the "Coeur de ville" (the heart of the town) as it is lovingly known by the locals. We suggest visiting some of the new shops as well as some of the beaches and creeks.
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.
Marseille, cultural city break
This two-day tour will take you on a tour of discovery of Marseille, European Capital of Culture 2013. Setting out from the Old Port, on foot, by ferry or by bus, you'll get to see the city's rich cultural heritage through its many museum and cultural centres: the MuCEM, Regards de Provence, the Cantini, the Borély, the MAC, Friche Belle de Mai, Cité Radieuse by Le Corbusier and the Mamo. Before leaving or after your cruise from Marseille, spend a weekend getting to know the surprising new face of the city.
'Savon de Marseille', how to tell the real from the fake
