Little Voyage by the Sea
I came to Provence, super excited to visit Europe’s capital of culture, Marseille, but left completely charmed not by France’s second largest city with it’s impressive new developments, but by the sweet little neighbouring town of Martigues where la Bloggeuse française Celine resides with her charmingly welcoming family.
I’m sure you can see why. The small fishing town, which boasts the title of ‘Town with the largest pond in Europe’ is adorably Provencale with rows of houses with those iconic pastel shutters and bobbing little boats nestled up together in the Mirior aux Oiseaux (the most picturesque spot where I am definitely going for dinner next time!)
Celine and I crammed all we could into the 4 boiling hot days that I was there. A road trip to scattered towns along the coast like Carry were perfect for cliff path ambles and a proper barbeque of Merguez sausages and rose wine were a highlight. A proper taste of French life. I could have gotten used to it!
