The Tomb may be modest and radiates something of the "ESPRIT Méditerrain", worn by the Camus ´ factory is. The air is fresh here as in the plane to AIX, forested mountains are close and invite to (bike) tours, are everywhere to visit colourful markets and food excellent. Maybe lack of opportunities for swimming, but thanks to the Mistral, it is often too cool in the early and late summer to swim anyway. In July and August, it's very hot very full and.
