The Camargue, the deal holiday destination!
Listed as a Grand Site de France, and known as a sanctuary for the emblematic flamingos of the Mediterranean, as well as being a protected natural area of some 150,000 hectares, the Camargue is a hugely rich location, one which you simply must come and see this summer! Halfway between Occitanie and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, the Camargue is a place in which to dive headlong into the heart of nature, on foot, by bike or aboard a genuine Camargue horse. Just choose your mount!
And to make sure this is a comprehensive getaway, come and stay in an adventurer's lodge tent in our Sandaya campsite at the gateway to the Camargue! Here, you've got outdoor sports, swimming pools, waterslides and free entertainment for the whole family, which will enliven your stay each day. So let the adventure commence!
Visit the Camargue with the family
With the family, there are all sorts of activities to choose from for really making the most of the really lovely scenery of the Camargue! Travelling with some budding horsemen? Discover the Camargue in that most traditional of ways and set off for a ride on a white horse!
Your children may be aching to see the emblematic flamingos up close! Then take them to see the famous bird sanctuary at the Pont-de-Gau north of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, which makes for an outing that's both fun and educational, as you seek out these strange birds! Back at the campsite, treat yourself to a spot of bathing on the L'Espiguette beach at Le Grau-du-Roi or the beach of Le Grand Travers at La Grande-Motte. What a day you'll have!
Visit the Camargue as a couple
Or how about treating yourselves to a nature break, just the two of you? Drop the kids off at the free mini clubs at the campsite and head for Aigues-Mortes, first port of call for your trip in the Camargue. From the tops of the ramparts of this mediaeval town, take in the sweeping views over the salt marshes, with their unique purple hues!
And as you battle your way into the wilder areas of the Camargue, come and enjoy our favourite stroll, which is in the marshes of Le Vigueirat, a protected natural area where the discovery trails wind their way along the water's edge. Or perhaps you would rather take them on a carriage ride at a gentle trot!
