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.

Marseille Saint-Victor by Les Marseillaises

With its Abbey, its view over the old port and authentic food shops, the St Victor neighbourhood has always drawn the well-informed tourist. As for the locals, it seems that the new generation is becoming more and more interested in these streets that are so full of history; they are flocking here to open sophistically decorated boutiques and food shops.

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?

Essential La Ciotat – the cradle of cinema

For your one-day tour of La Ciotat, you can relax on the Grande Plage or the beach at Figuerolles, a popular spot for locals that you can't leave without seeing. Cinema lovers should head to the Eden Théâtre, famous for screening one of the first films produced by the Lumière brothers. The birth of film is also honoured at the Musée Ciotaden, a museum that retraces the town's history and the traditions of Provence. After an excellent lunch at Le Vin 7, potter around the shops at the Old Port. Later, make your way to the Ile Verte and Parc du Mugel for stunning views. Just don't forget your camera!
