  • The landscapes of Cézanne and a real charmer! Probably one of the most beautiful places of the region by its authenticity and diversity of landscapes.

  • This mountain, which peaks at over 1000 metres, is a must visit for the country of Aix in Provence. It can be seen from a distance, but nothing beats a little getaway to explore, on the South with its steep cliffs on the North with its garrigue more or less gently sloping, West with the famous cross of Provence, East with the less well known one side side side pic of the flies (high point). I have travelled it in long, wide and across, on foot, by bike (ATV). The ascent to the cross is probably unavoidable (allow 2 hours), but for hikers a little braver, you can consider the route from West to East (or East to West). This crossing is for me my best memory. I perform a November 2, and it was a beautiful day, a completely clear but windless sky. Much less frequented, we found ourselves in perfect communion with nature and the landscape out of sight of all the side: pond of Earth, sea, Mediterranean, massive star, Holy balm... Unforgettable!
