Salon De Provence


 Strategically situated between the Alpilles, the Camargue and the Aix-Marseille route, Salon de Provence is surrounded by magnificent countryside where the olive tree is "king"!

Salon is one of the oldest villages in Provence and it was the birthplace of the famous clairvoyant scholar Nostradamus. His house is in the old district and it is now a museum which details his life and unique personality.

There is also a long story behind the water flowing from the fountains of Salon... in the 16th century a certain Adam De Craponne (not Al Caponne!) invented and built the irrigation system later used throughout the district... thanks to Mr De Craponne and his ingenious system, the countryside soon prospered and today Salon de Provence is one of the most charming in the area. 

Visitors to Salon will be enchanted by the leafy plane trees and picturesque streets in the village centre... so typical of Provence!
