It is located at a few minutes from Le Clos Geraldy charming B&B in Provence.

It offers a unique panorama of the Mediterranean sea.

You can go hiking or cycling there. It’s also a great motorcycle ride. It is accessed by Gemenos or Auriol.

We can provide a detailed sheet that we have prepared for our visitors who wish.

You can also reach the Parc de St Pons and take a walk, along small irrigation locks and through the forest of Sainte-Baume. The park also shelters various old buildings, churches, convent, in the course of restoration. It is a very peaceful walk, not difficult because the slope is low. You can stop next to a small waterfall.

There are also a few goat farms along the road that winds up to the summit. You can buy very good quality fresh or ripened goat cheese there.
