Things to do

Get your history and culture fix in Bouches-du-Rhone

Channel your inner Indiana Jones in Arles, home to a bevy of historical treasures like 1st-century Roman Theater of Arles and the 4th-century public baths known as the Thermae of Constantine. And check out the Musee Reattu, an art museum housing works by local painter Jacques Reattu. In the bustling port city of Marseille, old-world charm collides with contemporary culture. Some of the best Bouches-du-Rhone vacation rentals here are just a stone's throw away from the grandiose Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica, the medieval Abbey of Saint-Victor de Marseille, and the Grand Littoral, one of Europe's biggest retail parks.


Veni, vidi, vino in Bouches-du-Rhone

Vacations in Bouches-du-Rhone can be as relaxed or as busy as you want them to be. Start the day with an early morning hot air balloon ride over the quiet French countryside, take the kids to the amusement parks in Auriol and Les Pennes-Mirabeau, or join a cooking class in Aix-en-Provence and learn how to make authentic ratatouille provencale. Of course, it wouldn't be a true provencale meal without wine. The Festival of the Vine and the Wine —held annually in May throughout the region—is the perfect opportunity to learn about food and wine pairing.


Seasons of contrast in Bouches-du-Rhone

The Mediterranean climate that envelops the Bouches-du-Rhone is anything but static. It doesn't rain all that much, but when it does, it pours. This mainly happens in spring—from March to May—and in the autumn months from September through November. Rainfall is also more frequent in the higher areas, while the coast remains dry most of the time. And watch out for the infamous mistral: a cold, violent wind that whips through southern France at speeds of up to 115 mph between winter and spring. Summer temperatures dance in the mid-70s from June to August, and winter is sweater weather at 35–45°.
