“Authentic and mystical Sainte-Baume.
Close to the Mediterranean Sea and not far from the Alps, the Saint-Baum Massif benefits from a triple bioclimatic and biogeographic influence (Mediterranean, steppe and mountain) which offers an abundance of water, a rare and precious element in Lower-Provence.
The Sainte-Baume Massif is an imposing limestone massif that rises up to an altitude of 1148 meters. It is home to several famous landmarks: the ancient forest of Sainte Baume, the grotto of Mary Magdalene and its monastery, the Saint Pilon, and the path of Roys (Kings). It’s in the surroundings of this natural setting that we invite you to discover a selection of wine-growing addresses, hiking trails and the Musée des Gueules Rouges. Immerse yourself into the heart of nature and the history of Provence Verte. During your stay in Provence Verte, don’t miss its’ seven other remarkable sites: the Gorges du Verdon, the Sainte-Victoire Mountain, the Basilica of Saint-Maximin, the village of Cotignac and its rock, the beach of Vallon Sourn, the Barjols’ fountains circuit and the medieval town of Brignoles.”
