Between the mountains and the sea, the Bouches du Rhône department offers a rich array of sights and an infinite variety of towns and landscapes that have inspired the greatest painters: the Alpilles, Saint-Rémy de Provence, Aix en Provence and the Sainte Victoire mountain, the turquoise waters of the calanques of Marseille and the Cote Bleue, the preserved and untamed Camargue, Arles and its exceptional historic heritage.
Lie in the sun on a fine sandy beach, climb hills and mountains, feast on the sun-filled cuisine and the festivals.
Here, it's all possible.
The region of Aix marvellously incarnates that Provençal art de vivre so highly lauded throughout the world.
A renowned mountain range with an air of Tuscany
Marseille, the Calanques of Cassis, Cape Canaille, the gems of the Mediterranean coast
A wild land with the accents of the Far West
