Location

It is located 6 kilometres away from Aix-en-Provence and Vauvenargues, Bouches-du-Rhône, and 3 kilometres away from Le Tholonet, near the Montagne Sainte-Victoire.

The commune includes Bonfillons, Roussillier, Plan de l'Orgue, Savoyards, and Bourg.

There are two man-made lakes, namely Bimont and Zola, and the streamlet, Prignon.

History

In 1239, the land was given to the Lord of Esparon by Raymond Béranger V, Earl of Provence.

By 1490, Jacques Garde had become Lord of Saint-Marc, and twenty years later the land was passed on to Dauphine Garde, wife of Bertrand de Puget.

In 1723, Saint-Marc was sold to the Meyronnets, a family of advisors in the Provence Parliament. In 1784-1785 Philippe de Meyronnet invited Lucien Bonaparte and Joseph Bonaparte to his estate.
