Martigues

Martigues
The Essential
With his typically southern French tendency for exaggeration, the cabaret singer Vincent Scotto described Martigues as the Venice of Provence, a town whose many canals and wonderful light have provided endless fascination for artists and film-makers alike. Situated between the Étang de Berre and the "Blue Coast", it boasts a gentle pace of life along its colourful narrow streets, providing a stunning contrast with the large industrial complexes on the horizon.
