A stroll under the watchful gaze of Sainte-Victoire mountain
This majestic Sainte-Victoire mountain – an official “Grand Site de France” flanked by impressive white limestone cliffs – stands proudly over Vallée de l’Arc. Head out to meet Cézanne’s mineral muse with the “Dans l’esprit de Sainte-Victoire” eco-tour in Fuveau. Panning out 90 km under the mount’s impressive silhouette, the walk – an ode to Provence’s colourful scenery and lifestyle – crosses the villages of Fuveau, Peynier, Trets, Gréasque, Mimet, Gardanne and Meyreuil. Stop off to chat with the local inhabitants, artisans, and cheese, honey, saffron and cereal producers. The plain stretching from East to West unveils a breathtaking array of Provencal countryside. And in the distance lies Cengle plateau, like a giant pedestal adorned with vines. The perfect pic!
