The Alpilles, a Climber’s Paradise!

Located in the heart of the cliffs, our campsite in the Alpilles is the ideal base for climbing enthusiasts! 🧗

The area of the same name, accessible on foot from your pitch, is part of the Orgon site known for its difficult routes such as Macumba and Le Bronx… but with over 500 routes in all, from 3b to 9a, there’s something for everyone!

The urgonian limestone rock, characteristic of the Alpilles, offers diverse climbing and a variety of movements, mostly on edges. (Watch those fingers!)
Another very pleasant aspect is the varied orientation of the walls, allowing you to adapt to the sun and heat.

To add more excitement, a multitude of other sectors are accessible in the Alpilles massif and more broadly in Provence!

The most passionate climbers will embark on day trips and undoubtedly want to lay their hands on the iconic cliffs in the south:

🪢 Buoux in the Luberon
🚗: 50 minutes from the campsite

🪢 Mount Sainte Victoire in Aix en Provence
🚗: 50 minutes from the campsite

🪢 The Calanques National Park in Marseille
🚗: 1 hour and 20 minutes from the campsite

As you’ve understood, the possibilities to climb to new heights are extensive in Provence, and the most challenging part will likely be making a choice!
