  • From Vauvenargues, bypassing the castle where Picasso rests, we follow fields of lavender. Then we join the GR9. Ascent to the Cross of Provence, priory. Surprise with a unique observation post. View at 360 degrees. Do not hesitate to talk to the young sappers of the position. We go down the 2nd ridge and then back to Vauvenargues. Six miles. Expect a lot of water because with the wind and the sun, you dry out quickly. It's within everyone's reach. magnificent!!!

  • We took the D17 from Aix, which runs along the southern edge. The weather was a bit rainy, and the mountain was sometimes shrouded in clouds, but there were great views from the stops along the road.
  • A must seen
  • Incredible place. Must visit/bike if you’re in the Aix region
  • Amazing views
  • A magical place, with no equivalent elsewhere. I like it!
