La dame du Castellet: Painting-arts...
This gallery, created 20 years ago in area Provence Riviera, exclusively introduces artists of the south of France. The ones have a prestigious international career, others voluntarily wish to remain more modest.

Motor sports competition
The original circuit, created by Paul Ricard (well known for his French alcool "Pastis") in 1970, was the setting for many national and international motor sports competitions.
I came here 3 times in the passed, for the F1 GP. Now, it's most a test track for F1, MotoGP, ... and special events (private races, ...)

Le Castellet Restaurants
Auberge Saint Eloi: Eating in a middle age atmosphere
I didn't eat here, but this restaurant is well known. Rating from French users are good to very good (food, staff, decoration, view) but price are high.
There are two entrances, on from the bottom (Rue Aube) and the other from the center of the village
Favorite Dish: Local provencal food
Castel Lumiere: The famous Castel Lumiere...
As "local", I have to reconize I neither eat here, but, the background is clear: this restaurant is well-known for being a good choice for epicures, who enjoy the fineness food.
This restaurant have also few rooms (Hotel).
It was on the "where to be seen" place, when F1 French Grand-Prix was here.
Pre-bokking is recommended
Favorite Dish: See menu. Experience based on feed-back I got

Le Castellet Warnings and Dangers
In South of France, climate is warm and dry in summer. Inflammable vegetation and strong wind (the famous Mistral) form an explosive mixture.
=> A cigarette end not well -extinguished is enough to trigger off a big forest fire, which will destroy thousands of hectares of forest,
=> the risk of fire is very high and the natural environment is step by step destroyed.
Fighting the fire is very dangerous because the ground is difficult with steep and rocky hills.
Sometimes, the wind changes its course and can trap firemen surrounded by the flames.
That happens many time, with sometime firemens burnt alive.
Some rules are to be applied. Not respecting this rules are considered as French law violation.
- Don't enter insides for forests during risky days (verry dry, strong wind)
- No firest inside the forests (including barbecue, cigarettes, camp fires...)
- No camping
- Ensure access inside the forests are free: don't park you car on the mandatory forest paths access for firemens
- Call 112 is you have a doubt (fire start, smoke, ...)
- Jungle and Rain Forest
