Walks

  • The Alpilles regional country park

    The Alpilles regional country park is the latest of the regional parks. Within its area lie 16 towns including Les Baux-de-Provence between Camargue and Luberon, a town which puts its Provencal identity clearly in the spotlight.

  • Advice and recommendations for walkers

    The forest and hillside are a source of life. They are a precious asset for everybody so let's take care of them! Sometimes, footpaths cross private properties. In this case, please show respect for the owner's generosity.

  • The Tremaïe Path

    This is quite a short walk that provides a different view of the "spur of rock" on which the village of Les Baux-de-Provence sits. The rock is shaped like the bow of a ship. It captures and retains the sunlight in the lacework of indentations and gaps chiselled out by erosion.

  • Alpilles: Les Baux - Saint Remy by crests

    Leaving the village of Les Baux-de-Provence, take the D27 towards Maillane and past the "Carrières de Lumières". At the top of this road turn at the right towards "The Viewing Table".

  • The Rock

    Bauxite is an aluminium mineral consisting of one or more aluminium hydrates. Discovered during the 19th century in several parts of the world it was from samples from Les Baux-de-Provence that in 1858 double aluminium chloride was successfully made from which the metal is easily extracted.
