September visits and activities

In September, we extend the summer in Martigues! The Indian summer invites itself every year in the South of France. The opportunity for us to offer you beautiful boat trips on the canals of "La Venise Provençale" during the day or at sunset to take your eyes full! Those most eager for fresh air can embark along the creeks of the Côte Bleue from Martigues to Marseille (Ensuès-la-Redonne) to discover an unsuspected nature from the Mediterranean Sea.
Until October, live new experiences in Martigues!

And as the return to school in September is placed under the sign of well-being, we offer you two sensory walks in the heart of nature.
One on the coast of the Côte Bleue from the port of Carro to the Cap Couronne lighthouse, and the other on the edge of the Etang de Berre in the heart of the Grand Parc de Figuerolles.

Finally, the most curious will be able to access the sets of the "Camping Paradis" series and learn all about the filming anecdotes.

On the program: discovery and sharing !
