Situated in Aubignan, Vaucluse, Belle-Île is a wetland at the confluence of several waterways. The flooding of the surrounding meadows and harvesting of clay has given birth to a mosaic of bocage wetlands used for farming. You can find out all about them thanks to various information panels along the way. In Camargue, the Musée du Mas du Pont de Rousty, set inside an old 19th-century sheepfold, embodies typical local and traditional architecture. It is also the departure point for a 3.5 km footpath across fields, marshes and pastures to a traditional Camargue cowboy’s cabin nestling amid the reeds… Last but not least, Cœur d’Honoré on the heights of La Ciotat, stands witness to the farming legacy of the Calanques National Park, in particular terraced farming and dry farming such as olive trees.
