Martigues and Marigagne by Ma Cigale est Fantastique
The towns of Marignane and Martigues, situated between land and sea, sit proudly on the banks of the étang de Berre. We have all heard of Marignane airport, but we know little about the town itself, which is an interesting place to visit. The town centre is currently being renovated. Martigues, Provence’s answer to Venice, is an island criss-crossed by canals that connect it directly to the sea. Together we will (re)discover the charms of these little-known towns.
Traditional La Montagnette
From Saint-Rémy circling back to Saint-Rémy, take a tour through some of Provence's most traditional villages. After lunch, it's on to the museum dedicated to the French poet Frédéric Mistral (Maillane). Next put your nose to the test at the museum of aromas and perfume (Gravescon) before admiring the candles produced at the Premonstratensians' factory and 'indiennes' (printed textile) at the Provençal fabric museum (Tarascon). Once you've had a look at Saint-Marcellin Chapel (Boulbon), head across to Barbentane and Cristine Darc's santons (figurines) before making your way to the Frigolet distillery. Enjoy the late afternoon sun over Château des Comtes de Provence in Reynard before returning to Saint-Rémy and visiting the Alpilles museum.
Arts and craftsmanship in Provence
To travel around Provence is a chance to visit extraordinary sites, discover new cities and explore the countryside. But it is also an opportunity to meet passionate craftspeople and have unique experiences, like making your own calisson sweets, delving into the secrets of how soap is produced in Marseille or admiring the work of 'santonniers', makers of traditional figurines. For a sightseeing holiday with a difference, look no further than vibrant and authentic Provence!
Olive oil, olive soap and olives with herbs… A fruit you can't do without!
This summer fish is the stuff both legends and dishes are made of
Christmas festivities, culture and tradition in the land of the 'Santon' figurine
