The Parc Marin de la Côte Bleue (Côte Bleue Marine Park) manages:

-the protected marine area of Cap-Couronne,
-the whole artificial reefs in front of Niolon, Ensues-la-Redonne, Carry-le-Rouet, Sausset-les-Pins and La Couronne-Carro.
Since 1983, the Parc Marin de la Côte Bleue carried out several events and actions to inform and raise awareness in people.
The 'Sentier Sous Marin': every summer, during the months of July and August, free guided tours on the sea surface are organized in the Marine reserve of Carry-le-Rouet.
This activity is intended to help people to discover the richness of coastal seabed and to raise awareness in people who visit the Côte Bleue on the role and importance of a protected marine area.
The Côte Bleue contains many small diving spots, directly accessible from the shore, and often suitable to beginners. It is also the perfect diving spot for the biologist/diver: few bottom, varied landscapes with many rifts, holes, and more, where sea life abounds. When summer arrives, and the Mediterranean Sea waters are almost tropical temperature, it is time to submerge for 2 hours and take lots of pictures!

From the Mediterranean, we fell in love with this land nestled in the heart of an unspoilt calanque, sheltered from the prevailing winds in the middle of pine trees and white rock where the mineral and vegetable atmospheres live together.
As the times goes on, this house reflects our life, warmth, and sharing.
We are a large family and every one brings individual qualities to this villa, attention to detail in the decorations, cooking material and comfort, a special mention for children, tenacity for maintenance and welcoming, love for nature in the landscaped garden.
As a 'recomposed' family, Michèle and Pierre, Cyril, Laure, Océane and Ambre, Damien and Nathalie, Lauranne, we would like to share this place that looks like ourselves, where the inhabitants of one week become friends and let a trace of their stay.
The main points of interest of the villa are not its typical architecture, and its isolation but the fact that this holiday Provence home has been keeping its unique, picturesque and kind of wild character.
This land of contrasts, combination of earth and water, serenity and movement, gives to this land a living aspect.
