Saint-Martin-de-Crau : entre quiétude et sites de caractère

Saint Martin de Crau - Walk / hike - Toute l'année

This atypical town, rooted in a rich land of contrasting landscapes, draws its strength from the singularity and the great diversity of its natural heritage. Saint-Martin-de-Crau actually has the distinction of having two faces: on the one hand the dry Crau with its lands arid, remarkable for its fauna and its flora, the wet Crau is where particular cultivated the Crau hay. This course proposes to focus on the side green and fertile land, irrigated by the main rivers: the Chapelette. Five kilometres from tables living and bucolic to admire a bike ride time.
