      Rode horses through the Camargue. Beautiful day with black bulls, white horses, and pink flamingoes. The museum of the area was very good, too. Try a local restaurant.

      A short drive from Arles made this an easy afternoon trip for us. Lots of places to walk and it was interesting seeing the delta and farmland. Not much wildlife but we did see the flamingos. We enjoyed our afternoon but then we had the luxury of time. If you are only in the area for a few days I am not sure this would be a good use of your time.

      We took a half day tour of le Camargue and loved it. Got to see the horses up close and the flamingos from a distance. There are thousands of bulls to see and we learned about The Course Camarguaise which we saw the next day. This is a wonderful area to spend a few hours or even more. Would love to come back!

    • August is the wrong time to visit

      The right time to visit the Camargue is early spring or late autumn when the migratory birds are there. During our visit there were not many birds and the variety was small - gulls, flamingos, coots, terns, darters, some swans and a few ducks. However, the thing to realize is that the Camargue consists of large areas of farming, salt works, habitation and tourist venues. Channels and ponds are much more prevalent than natural marshes. We understand why, but it is still a wake up call after watching all those wonderful nature programmes on TV. And most of the famous wild horses of the Camargue we saw were in fields or paddocks where you can saddle up and ride them. A different picture from the horses galloping wildly though the marsh with manes flying and water spraying from their hooves. Sigh. Reality stinks.

      We stayed at Camping Huttopia, Fontvieille. Which is a nice site with a lovely pool, its in the forest so lots of walks. Its also a good jumping off point for a visit to the Camargue. How glad I am we didnt stay on a campsite in the Camargue. We met an English couple who were staying on a campsite at Saintes Maries de la Mer who said the pitches were very small and it was rammed- and that was in June. However this is only hearsay. Saintes Maries de la Mer is worth a quick visit but its very touristy. Also there is so much standing water they must have mosquitoes the size of pigeons. We went to visit the Park Ornithologique but just couldnt park (and that was early in the day) so gave up on that. Did see flamingos,well I think they were, just pink spots in the distance. We saw lots of white horses in riding stables (none galloping through water with manes streaming in the wind) and we did see a field of black bulls, only because a tour bus had stopped which alerted us think there might be something interesting to see. We went to Aigues Mortes which is a nice walled town. Get away from the tourist bit and its well worth a visit. We found the salt mines and there is a little train that takes you round them, takes about an hour, we didnt have time but it looked interesting. I glad we went, it made a nice day out, I didnt know what to expect, it was interesting but not as wild as I expected.
