Buy property in Bouches-du-Rhône
This département is known for its cities Marseille and Aix-en-Provence and the nature reserve Camargue. Marseille is the second largest city in France and has in recent years undergone an extensive makeover. The port-city was long known for being cool, but has become increasingly buzzing and modern and is the 2013 European cultural capital. Aix-en-Provence is a stylish student city and has been one of the favourite cities of the French for many years. Not surprising, because it has everything you could ever want from a city: medieval streets, stately avenues and squares, fancy boutiques, many museums, second-hand bookstores and galleries. The landscape surrounding the two cities is hilly and quiet. The nature reserve Camargue is known for its marshes aligning the coast featuring flamingos, half-wild horses and miles of tranquillity and cycling-paths. In the summer months, the train ZonThalys travels from Amsterdam to Marseille in just 7.5 hours, and from Brussels in just 4.5 hours.
