Septèmes les Vallons

The Departement of Bouches du Rhone - Pop.: 11.000 h.

On the A517, between Marseilles and Aix-en-Provence (20km).

Septèmes-les-Vallons forders the northern edge of Marseilles and hence forms part of the city’s suburbs. Septèmes is not exactly a tourist is more of a commuter suburb, situated as it is on the doorstep of both Marseilles and Aix and a stone’s throw from the motorway

The heart of the town is to be found uphill from the unicipality's blocks of flats. After you’ve walked along the long avenue of plane trees, you’ll find works from the region’s artists displayed in “le jardin des arts” (the Art Garden). This is not far from the town hall. The visitor cannot fail to be fascinated by the garden’s front wall, painted with trompe-l’oeil designs inspired by Roman times.

The Provencal market, held every Monday in Place de la Mairie gives visitors the opportunity to discover local products.

Neighbouring villages:

Simiane Collongue (5km), Les Pennes Mirabeau (6km), Bouc-Bel-Air (10km).
