Caireval : circuit VTT 1

Cycle Sport - Toute l'année

Fort de 150 hectares sur la commune de Rognes, le domaine de Caireval provient d'un legs établi au début du XXe siècle. Il atteste aujourd'hui de la qualité du patrimoine forestier départemental. Sous de fiers chênes et de grands pins dont les branches forment dans l'espace d'harmonieux dessins, les balades sont enchanteresses. Les clairières de cette version provençale de la forêt de Brocéliande s'ouvrent sur de magnifiques vues des Bouches-du-Rhône. Par temps clair, on va jusqu'à distinguer la mer. Circuit adapté handisport.

Whether you visit in summer or winter, you always feel as though you are on holiday. It is no wonder that numerous celebrities have decided to come and live here, Cassis is a real jewel. I am going to take you on a walk that is colourful, fragranced and that has, perhaps, a gourmet treat or two!

The calanques of Marseille, Cassis and La Ciotat

Calanques National Park is an essential destination for any trip to Provence. A day is almost not enough to explore this mineral- and vegetation-rich natural asset! The magic begins in Marseille, at the Sormiou calanque (creek) to visit on foot. Next set sail for a tour of other calanques by boat from where you truly get the measure of the huge rocks rising up from the turquoise waters. Then it's onwards to La Ciotat where you can wrap up the day at the charming Petit Mugel creek. En route, you can't fail to be captivated by the soaring cliffs at Cap Canaille. Note: depending on the weather conditions, this site may be closed for walking due to the risk of forest fires. Get instant weather reports using the free Myprovence Balade app.

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.
