I enjoyed the Camargue, feeling the energy of the town’s folk as they prepare for the running of the horses and the bulls...I thank you Martine. You shared many of the subtle and distinctive aspects of this special area. – Jeanne P

Vacation in Camargue – a protected natural park

South of Provence and Languedoc, Camargue is a protected natural park in the delta of the Rhones river, with an exceptional climate, its own culture, and fascinating wildlife. It’s a beautiful place to visit and is included in every France with Martine vacation experience.

On the Mediterranean Sea

Camargue’s climate and flat landscape are unique, with water and land intermingling, beautiful beaches bathing in the Mediterranean, pink flamingos, wild bulls raised for bull-fights by the “Gardians” ( cow-boys from Camargue), and its famous white horses, born black.

A place to re-live history

One experiences history when coming to the lovely fisherman village of Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, where it is believed that the 3 Maries landed after the death of Christ, and where thousands of gypsies are coming every year from all over Europe for a pilgrim. One does not want to miss visiting the lively and historic city of Aigues-Mortes, fortified and still intact, build in the 1100 for the departure to the crusades. In addition, Arles, famous city where Van Gogh painted so many of his chef-d’oeuvres is “a must see” with its irresistible charm, its Roman Theater and  Arena, beautiful churches and wonderful restaurants.
