Fontblanche - circuit VTT 1

Ceyreste, Roquefort la Bédoule - Walk / hike - Toute l'année

Fontblanche, c'est une forêt merveilleuse. Notamment au Grand Caunet, perché sur les hauteurs de Ceyreste, où d'élégants pins d'Alep adoucissent l'ambiance. On y promène, ému, dans l'intensité poétique du paysage. Cet espace naturel préservé étendu sur plus de 850 hectares, à cheval sur les communes de Ceyreste et de Roquefort-la-Bédoule, est un des derniers domaines forestiers existant sur le littoral des Bouches-du-Rhône. Il n'en apparaît que plus précieux... Le Département en a fait l'acquisition entre 1974 et 1986, avant de l'aménager : tables en bois, bancs, balisage... Le tout sur trois sites principaux, également ouverts au public en période estivale. On peut aussi y admirer la chapelle Saint-André de Julhans, datée du XIIIe siècle, ainsi que des fours à chaux et à ciment. Circuit adapté handisport
