Enjoy the sweetness of Provence by spending a weekend at the hotel Kyriad Gémenos. You can devote a day to discovering the history of the village and the contemplation of its typical architecture of Provence. The town hall, formerly the castle of the marquesses of Albertas, opens onto a long shady square, a vestige of “Petit Versailles” (former nickname of the property of the marquis). Go through Gémenos following the fountain circuit and make a stop at the Lavoir, now an exhibition space. After a night in your comfortable room, discover the park of Saint-Pons, its abbey, its chapels and its waterfalls.
Spending 7 days at the Kyriad accommodation in Gémenos? Take time to visit Aubagne, homeland of Marcel Pagnol and Jean Giono. Back to Gémenos, where Pagnol shot some scenes of his film Regain. Explore the Sainte-Baume massif and Saint-Pons Park with great hikes. The idyllic Calanques and beaches of Cassis, 15 minutes away, are also within easy reach. Perhaps you will be tempted to push your excursions further into the Bouches-du-Rhône, and to leave your bags at one of our 3-star Kyriad hotels in Marseille
Gémenos is an ideal destination for a family nature holiday. Children will be delighted to stretch their legs on the trails of Sainte-Baume or Parc Saint-Pons. Young and old alike will appreciate the richness of the Mediterranean forest species. A trip to Pennes-Mirabeau, about 40 kilometers or so away, will be the opportunity to visit the equestrian center “Mon ami poney,” which offers half days of pony activities for young children. Back at the hotel Kyriad Gémenos, sit at the restaurant to savor the gastronomy of Provence.
