at a few minutes of the Blackcurrant beach, located in the zone known
as “surface of adhesion” of the National park of the Creeks,
it attracts tourists more and more.
city extends on 4 kilometers, of is in west, in a now green small valley
thanks to its inhabitants, between two hills dominating Aubagne in north
and Cassis in the south.
Carnussiens, old or new, perfectly used all the surface legally buildable,
which makes of Carnoux a homogeneous whole of buildings of downtown
