A 150 km2 stretch of saltwater connected to the sea, Lake Berre runs along the edge of Martigues and several other towns in the area of the Rhône river delta. Created by rising seawater, it is like a little inland sea. It is the second largest saltwater lake in Europe. It is 20 km long and 16.5 km wide, with a surface area of 15,500 hectares. This means 900 million cubic meters of water.
The Blue Coast
The Blue Coast is a 22 km stretch of amazing landscapes with a mixture of pine forests, rocky ravines, villages and ports. The Chalets de la Mer Vacation Park is ideally located for you to ex these marvelous surroundings, whether it's the fishing villages on the coast or the rocky ravines at the edge of our park. There are also many coves along the coast and our team will be able to help you find some new ones. You can also enjoy various water sports nearby.
Open all year round and nestled in almost 300 acres of pine forest, Figuerolles Park offers many nature activities through a network of walking and mountain biking trails. You can also enjoy a tree-to-tree adventure playground, educational farm and miniature tourist train.
The largest of the fine sandy Blue Coast beaches are freely accessible, maintained and (mostly) supervised. They are regularly awarded the blue flag in recognition of excellent water quality for swimming. Chalets de la Mer Vacation Park is close to the Blue Coast Regional Park marine reserve, 600 meters from Verdon beach.
