Vallon des Auffes - Marseille

The "Vallon des auffes" is one of the most typical places in Marseille. We find the atmosphere "Marseillaise", a small village in the heart of the Phocean city. Time has stopped, and we find ourselves immersed in a singing past. The valley of Auffes also offers us exceptional sunsets. Any photography lover will someday capture this magical moment where the sun sets between the arches of the bridge. This place is also a meeting place to enjoy good tapas, have a drink and enjoy the sun. I also recommend the excellent Fanfan, gourmet restaurant, known for its bouillabaisse.

The "Vallon des Auffes", in Marseille, is one of the must-see places to discover and that I advise you to visit. It is located next to the beach of Catalan, at the bottom of the statue to the heroes of the army of the east. It is a sinful village within Marseille. Time has stopped, and we meet again at the time of Marcel Pagnol. I love to admire the return of sharp points to the port, these moments are for me timeless and magical. The golden colors of the sun color the sea.


You will find excellent restaurants with typical dishes of Marseille, the bouillabaisse, the soup of the sinner, all kinds of freshly caught fish of the morning. I recommend the famous Fanfan, which will offer you a splendid view of this port of sin. You can take a drink around a good beer, enjoy good tapas and especially enjoy the moment. Marseille and its joy of living in its pure state !!!
