Bouches-du-Rhône

The Bouches du Rhône are surprising by the diversity of landscapes and Provençal cultures that they offer. Because it is the chain of the Alpilles with the magnificent village of Baux de Provence, the Côte Bleue to the Calanques with its coves and turquoise waters, the wild and unspoiled Camargue but also the unmissable cities of Marseille, Aix en Provence and Arles whose known historical and cultural heritage is unmissable.

What makes this Region special

North of the Bouches du Rhône, between Luberon and Camargue, the Alpilles massif is extremely popular. Its small roads winding along the olive groves, its perched villages and its many castles offer its visitors a timeless experience. Located in the middle of the Regional Natural Park of the Alpilles, the town of Saint Remy de Provence, it is the small capital of the Alpilles, where the sun always shines. Nestled between Marseille and Cassis, the Calanques, where small creeks follow one another, are a pure wonder of nature.
To visit absolutely .. by way of the sea or by the marked out paths… .the experience remains unforgettable! In the west of the department, the Camargue is a true natural paradise, still preserved, classified as a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco and a Regional Natural Park. Incredibly exotic, we love it for its unique heritage with its long deserted beaches, its many flamingos, its gypsy culture, its atmosphere with its bulls, its white horses, its rice fields, its ponds, its endless horizons ... it has its own character and it remains unique!
Finally, known among other things, for its Old Port, the canebière, its bouillabaisse and the authentic and cosmopolitan district of Le Panier, Marseille, the 2nd city of France, is established as the capital of the South, full of effervescence, creativity, artistic and cultural. Beside it, Aix en Provence, city of art, city of water, with its architectural riches is the city where life is good. Cours Mirabeau, the welcoming terraces of its cafes, the Rotonde fountain and the many small shops inexorably seduce those who take the time to linger there. It is the Provence of the painter Cézanne and Marcel Pagnol where one can easily imagine the famous card game with César. It is also the Provence of one of the greatest French couturiers, of international renown, Christian Lacroix. A Provence with a thousand facets which one can only fall in love with, an inexhaustible source of inspiration for many artists.
