Alan Rogers Review

Camping Marius is tucked away beside a calanque (or inlet) on the protected and wild coastline between Marseille and Martigues. The Cavalier family take great pride in making it a peaceful haven. A private gate leads to a challenging walk through the pine trees to the beach (200 m) across the rocky cliffs or you can walk along the road. The site is a colourful oasis, regularly laid out with shade from shrubs and mixed trees. It provides 103 pitches, of which 62 are occupied by mobile homes to rent (two specially adapted) and 21 are seasonal, leaving just 20 for touring units (all with 6A electricity, sink and water supply).

A new small Zen wellness centre, easily accessible for disabled visitors, offers a sauna, a relaxation room and treatments, and is the perfect place to relax. There is a great deal to see in the area. Martigues has a charming old centre of Provencal houses lining the Canal de Caronte which links the Etang de Berre to the Mediterranean. Marseille, one of France’s greatest cities, is within easy reach and Aix-en-Provence is also well worth a visit. The Camargue extends to the west and the site owners will be pleased to recommend places of interest.
