Camping du Garlaban: Tent pitches

General

  • Peaceful Provence site in a pine forest near sandy beaches
  • The closest site to the Old Port of Marseille
  • Night walks, nature trips and donkey walks all available for guests

Base camp in Provence calling… And base camp for utterly magnif Marseille, less than half an hour away from this pine forest site: France's second biggest city and the largest on the Mediterranean coast is a place to roam for weeks for its famed and spectacular Old Port, splendid beaches and attractions for all tastes including art galleries, theatres and a couple of dozen museums.

There's no probs getting to all this cultured and sandy lot from Camping du Garlaban, as it's the closest Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur site to Marseille's port. Hail a ride from the bus stop to take you into the city, via a scenic route passing through Aubagne (stop off here at some point; it's also truly fab), and then on from Marseille to the seaside town of Cassis and the coastal and marine landscapes of the Calanques National Park.

The Camping du Garlaban mission is to cater for peaceful stays in a preserved countryside environment, for guests to come back relaxedly back to after an energetic day around Marseille, Aubagne, the national park or the nearby beaches: both La Ciotat and Saint-Cyr-Sur-Mer are within 25 to 30 minutes' drive.

There's no noisy bar or hectic entertainment schedule here, just a quiet vibe, a few recreational sessions a week in July and August, and placid excursions such as night walks under the stars, nature-spotting trips, or walks with donkeys into the Provence countryside. (And so you can mingle with your like-minded fellow guests, a welcome drink session is held every Saturday evening.)

An outdoor pool, games area and table tennis are around if you're up for getting (gently) active, and a riding centre for hacks and lessons is 800 metres from the site.

Food markets are on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday mornings a couple of kilometres away in Aubagne.

Please note

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

The campground/park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.
