Massif des Costes tours

Come and explore five villages in the heart of Provence with the Massif des Costes Tourism Office!

GUIDED VILLAGE TOURS

ALLEINS 

Découverte de la provence et des 5 villages du massif des Coste dans les Bouches du Rhône

The tour takes you through narrow streets to explore the heritage and history of Alleins up to the hill of Alleins château that features a gorgeous panoramic view over the village, the Alpilles and Luberon ranges and the Durance valley… The tour highlights the farming character of Alleins that makes the village so singularly charming. 

AURONS 

Come and tour the lower part of the village before acquiring some altitude and making the most of the gorgeous vista over the Massif des Costes and the plain below.

LA BARBEN 

Stout walking shoes are recommended for this guided tour around La Barben. The walk takes you around the château and introduces you to its history.

PELISSANNE 

The village centre of Pélissanne affords a rich heritage stretching over the centuries to help understand its history. The tour includes the medieval centre (which is still circular) and its winding narrow streets despite the 1909 earthquake.

VERNEGUES

Hiking boots are required for this tour of Old Vernègues! We leave the modern village on the slopes to explore the remnants of pre-1909 Vernègues. This is a wonderful opportunity to image how the village was before the earthquake and to enjoy the panoramic vista.
