Beach at La Saulce

Martigues - Beach

"Plage de la Saulce" is situated at the end of the "Sentier du Littoral" signposted footpath which runs all the way along the pretty Côte Bleue coast. This charming beach of golden sand is attended by a lifeguard in summer and fully fitted out with toilets, showers, bars and restaurants...

Standing just above the creek, Chapelle de Sainte Croix appears to be standing guard over the bathers. Built in memory of Saint Mary Magdalene who is said to have moored on these shores with the first Christians chased from Palestine, this little chapel harbours a genuine fragment of the Christ's cross.

Figs

Figs

Francis lived happily close beside his tree...

Picked ripe from the tree, figs are simply to die for. They can also be scattered on trays and left to dry in the sun for 3 days: "That's the best way to keep your figs all winter – we serve figs at Christmas as one of Provence's famous 13 Desserts," smiles Jacqueline Honoré.

Quince

Quince

A story that will make you turn to jelly...

As yellow as sunshine and as warm as a winter fireplace... The quince isn't very pretty, but the people of Provence love it. You could even say that a passion has been born between this irregular-shaped fruit, somewhat resembling a dented, rustic pear and our lovers of jams, jellies and pastes.
