The Côte Bleue train route


Discover the village of Ensuès-la-Redonne


Ensuès la Redonne is a typical village on the Côte Bleue. It is divided into three main areas: the center of Ensuès, eccentric in relation to the sea, Redonne and its port and the ports of Méjean. From the Ensuès car park.

The village is part of the commune of Bouches-du-Rhône in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, Ensuès-la-Redonne is located on the coast of the Côte Bleue. It is located not far from Carry-le-Rouet, and about twenty kilometers from Marseille and Aix-en-Provence.

Bordered by creeks and marinas, the small town of Ensuès is largely protected by the Coastal Conservatory.

Having become very touristy, Ensuès-la-Redonne seduces its visitors with its coastline and its dream beaches. In addition to its coves and scrubland, it also reveals a charming architectural heritage typical of this part of Provence.

10 km away from Ensuès small village with a maritime feel has a very pretty marina with many restaurants and a few diving centers. Not far from the port there is also a lighthouse, a casino and a cinema. You can go to the market on Tuesday and Thursday to discover local products. The sale of fresh fish takes place every morning at the port. You will also find two diving centers there which offer baptisms throughout the year.


Carro- The Crown

To admire the surfers and enjoy its beautiful beach


It is an authentic fishing village which is furthest from Figuières (20 km). It is also a center renowned for its wind surfing spot due to the southwest and east winds which create waves of several meters. Stand-up paddle, windsurfing and diving are also popular sports in Carro. You will also find many schools there which offer courses throughout the year. 



For its magnificent cornice which runs along the sea and its small port

Renowned for its magnificent promenade which runs along the sea Sausset-les-Pins is 16 km from the Calanque de Figuières. I especially recommend it to lovers of jogging along the sea or to those who like a picnic on the beach. 

 Known for its magnificent promenade which runs along the sea and its marina Sausset-les-Pins is 16 km from the cove of Figuières. It is accessible in 10 minutes by an expressway which offers you a superb view of the sea and the port of Sausset upon arrival. 


Martigues – the Venice of Provence

For its colorful facades, its canals that cross the city and its Italian atmosphere


Visit, alone or with a guide, the city center and in particular the Ile district, a true little paradise. The flowery canals and moored boats offer an idyllic setting for a meal on the terrace of a restaurant, the opportunity to taste the region's specialties. Martigues is 20 km from my apartment.

Located between the pond and the sea, the town of Martigues will offer you a bit of Italian atmosphere and will seduce you with the charm of its “bird mirror” district.
