The Boulodrome Henri Salvador

« Des photos de bord de mer… dans mon jardin d’hiver »

Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer was his paradise, his beloved town. And he loved pétanque, so it was only natural that Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer should honour him by naming its boulodrome after Henri Salvador, the famous French singer.

During your holidays, you too can strike the jack under the shade of the plane trees at Boulodrome Henri Salvador, in the heart of town.



Did you know?


The word ‘pétanque’ comes from Marseille slang, “les pieds tanqués” – meaning “feet firmly planted”.


While in Provence, go native and enjoy local sports!
