  • You must visit Provence and go through the mountain of Sainte Victoire. Exceptional walk, go up to pray, then the cross of Provence, continue on the ridge and down the castle of Picasso. It's a sporty ride, approximately 5 hours of walking from the dam of Bimon. View splendid, scent, history, etc...

  • Of many warnings to avoid fires, ascension in flip-flops, without protection. Of beautiful trails sometimes one little stony and narrow but not difficult passages, allow 2 hours enjoying the different points of view to take full advantage of these wonderful landscapes.
