Cornillon-Confoux, Provence, France

Cornillon-Confoux is an oasis of tranquility - a small hamlet located not far away from Salon-de-Provence, at the top of a hill which offers beautiful views of the large area of ​​Provence. In good weather you can even see the Mont Ventoux, located about 70 km away from here.

Parking in Cornillon-Confoux

We drove up the hill and then parked on the only available parking located next to the town hall (P1; GPS: 43.563610, 5.072057).

The old town

We move down the Grand Rue street in the southern direction. After about 200 meters we reach the Place de l'Eglise (A; GPS: 43.562218, 5.071715), which features the twelfth-century church with an interesting bell tower. Near the church was installed a modern sculpture called "Ikaria" created by Igor Mitoraj, renowned Polish sculptor. We come to the vantage point (B; GPS: 43.561005, 5.072600) from which we can enjoy a very beautiful scenery.

Near the village there are many interesting stone huts, known as "Bories". In the past, they were a shelter for peasants or sheeps in case of bad weather.


We of course don't end up so well started day and we continue our route in interesting environment to the Mediterranean Sea passing by Saint-Chamas and Martigues. Finally we reach the coastal village of Sausset-les-Pins. There we park the car in the parking lot (P2; GPS: 43.329450, 5.110960) nearby the marina and then walk around. Back we will drive through interesting town of Salon-de-Provence, where Nostradamus lived. We wrote a separate article about this place.
