Western Europe’s largest river delta, the Camargue is located south of Arles in Southern France, between the Mediterranean sea and the arms of the Rhone River delta. Around a third is lakes of marshland, and the area has been declared a wetland of international importance as well as being a protected park, the Parc Naturel Regional de Camargue. In particular, the region is home to hundreds of species of birds, most notably the flamingo.

The area is also known for its bulls, which form the centre of many of the region’s traditions. They are tended to by cowboys known as les gardiens, who ride white horses across the open plains. Although the area is protected, much of the Camargue has been altered by humans, particularly as it is an important area for salt extraction and was a major centre when industrial salt collection started in the 19th century.

A two-day break:

A short stay is perfect to explore, especially from the Premiere Classe Arles Hotel which is on the edge of the Camargue. Visit the Parc Ornithologique de Pont de Grau to ensure the best views of the migratory birds, including the pink flamingo. It’s also well worth taking a trip to the Musée Camarguais between Arles and Les Saintes , an old sheep barn where you can gain an insight into the history of the area.

A week-long stay:

Visiting for a week gives more time to discover the whole area. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride, from which you can see the famous bulls and horses across the fields. A day could be spent visiting the charming town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-mer , and visit the central church where you will find the statue of Black Sarah, who is venerated by gypsies. They gather here every year for a religious festival.

A family holiday:

The whole family will love the Camargue. Spend a day on the Espiguette beach, which has miles of sand for you to find your own tranquil spot. In the evening visit the nearby Aigues-Mortes , a fortified town built by by Louis IX with stone walls which are great to see. A day trip to the Roman city of Arles is not to be missed, easy when staying at the Premiere Classe Arles Hotel just a few minutes away from the town centre.

Transport:

Due to its protected status, bikes and horseback rides are the most popular way to get around, rather than cars. Nîmes airport is the nearest for the Camargue, with Premiere Classe Arles Hotel ideally located nearby. The TGV runs from Paris to Avignon in 2 hours 40 minutes, where you can get a local train to Arles in 20 minutes.

Gastronomy:

As a result of the local produce, dishes with bull meat are very popular in the region, particularly a stew known as Gardiane la Camargue. Often these are served with the red, long-grain rice that is grown in the paddy fields in the area. Seafood from the Mediterranean is also on offer at most restaurants.

Events:

One of the most popular events is the Fete des Gardians, which is held every May to celebrate the cattle workers and their important role in the community. Men and women dress in 17th century costume and accompany the gardiens through the streets before heading to the Roman coliseum where they put on a spectacular display of horsemanship and other games.

Interesting Fact:

The Camargue horse is always born black or brown but as it gets older it turns a shade of grey or white. In an act to preserve these horses, in 1978, the French Government set standards for the breed and began to register them, with an official set of rules established for a horse to be considered as a Camargue.
