Travel guide
Camargue

The Camargue is a unique land, with a very strong and unique identity in France. Formed by the Rhône delta, it straddles the departments of Gard and Bouches-du-Rhône. A land of white horses, celebrated by the film Crin-Blanc, and black bulls, it is guarded by guardians who are not without evoking American cowboys and who gather in herds. The bouncing bulls of the Camargue race are next to the "toros", heavy goods vehicles destined for bullfighting, for which the ancient arenas'Arles serve as a showcase. Stroll through the Camargue and admire the rich fauna and flora, made up of bulls and horses, but also pink flamingos and mosquitoes, reeds and sand lilies. You will see salt marshes and rice fields, the flagships of the Camargue economy. And you will discover amazing folk costumes in Arles or in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Finally, history lovers will not be disappointed and will be able to enjoy the visit of the remparts de Aigues-Mortes, the starting point for the Crusade in Saint-Louis

When to go en Camargue ?

Benefiting from a mild climate (although a little hot in summer), the Camargue is a region that can be visited all year round. The high tourist season takes place between July and August, accommodation is taken over and prices rise. But the Camargue also fills up during the region's major festive events: the Arles (in September) and Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (mid-July) festivals, and especially on the occasion of the gypsy pilgrimage (24 and 25 May). The city is full, but the phenomenon is unique in France!
