  • Les carrières de lumière

    This is a very special sound and light show ! The principle : you walk in huge old quarries of bauxite and white limestone on which the masterpieces of very great painters are projected accompanied by musics that punctuate the setting of the pictures. A wonderful moment for both children and adults.
    The new show of this year highlights Van Gogh along with a special " dreamed Japan" show. And after having shared this good moment with your family, we highly recommend you to visit the medieval village of Les Baux de Provence with its castle, its fortifications and its typical Provencal narrow streets and shops.

  • The Félix favorite walk - Félix favoriete wandeling

    If you have the good idea to come to Félix de la Bastide in spring or late summer and you like a little walk, do not hesitate to discover the creeks of the Blue Coast from the coastal path .
    The better way is to park your car at the Creek Niolon, admire the scenery until the Creek of Mejean , then drink a glass to the harbor bar and continue until Ensuès la Redonne ( after about 2 hours walk) . To return, take the Little Blue Coast Train ( it will cost a few euros) to review the sea and its creeks in a different light.

    Komt U in de lente of laat in de zomer naar onze camping Felix de la Bastide, en je wilt een wandeling gaan maken, aarzel dan niet om via het kustpad de kreken van de blauwe kust te gaan ontdekken.
    De beste manier is om uw auto te parkeren bij de Niolon Creek, bewonder daar tijdens uw wandeling het landschap tot de Creek van Mejean, neem een drankje in de Habor bar en wandel daarna verder tot Ensuès la Redonne (ongeveer 2 uur lopen). Om terug te keren, neem de kleine blauwe kust trein (kosten een paar euro) dan kunt u nogmaals genieten van de kreken en de zee vanuit een ander gezichtspunt.

  • Félix favorite village - Félix favoriete dorp


    Undoubtedly The Old Miramas is a typical village as we like it in Provence. Walking through its streets is a pleasure especially as there are famous glaciers on site. For us, Misto is the best.
    An amazing homemade ice cream card : about fifty perfumes and at least as many possible ice creams cups, without forgetting the delicious homemade crepes ...
    For the feast and entertainment , once again Martigues is the best spot. There is always something to do in the Jonquière or in the Ile areas.

    Het oude Miramas is een typisch Provencaals dorp. Wandelen door de straten is een genot, vooral omdat er beroemde ijssalons te vinden zijn. Voor ons is Misto de beste. Een verbazingwekkende zelfgemaakt ijs menu kaart, ongeveer vijftig smaken en minstens zo veel ijsjes in bekers. En niet te vergeten heerlijke huisgemaakte pannenkoeken... Voor feest en entertainment is nogmaals Martigues de beste plek, en er is altijd iets te doen in de Jonquière of in de Ile gebieden.

  • The 13 desserts - De 13 desserts

    In Provence, for Christmas , we traditionally eat 13 desserts recall of the 13 guests at the Last Supper. Depending on each family , the list changes , but there always are dried fruits representing the 4 beggars and the oil pump . With us, there is in general: some "Pompe à l'huile", nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, figs, raisins, black nougat, white nougat, dates, prunes, "papillotes", "calissons" and clementines.

    In de Provence eten we met kerstmis na de nachtmis traditioneel na het souper 13 desserts als herinnering aan de 13 deelnemers van het Avondmaal. In elke familie wordt er een eigen variatie gemaakt. Te beginnen met een dikke koek lekker gemaakt met olijfolie en oranjebloesemwater, de zogenaamde pompe á huile en verder worden de volgende gedroogde vruchten gegeten zoals walnoten, hazelnoten, amandelen, vijgen, rozijnen, zwarte noga, witte noga, dadels, pruimen, papillotes, calissons en clementines.
