Camargue

At the crossroads between Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence, just a quick hour’s drive from your Sandaya campsite in the Hérault, the Camargue Regional Nature Park offers an unspoilt landscape covering some 150,000 ha free from urban development. A land of salt pans, lagoons and the famous “manades”, the herds of its renowned horses and bulls and the farms that raise them, the Camargue attracts visitors in search of tranquillity in an environment ruled by nature. Now it’s your turn to discover it!

Your holiday rental near the Camargue

North of Montpellier, your Sandaya family campsite offers an open door to some of the most fabulous landscapes along the Mediterranean coast, from the Étang de Thau in the east to the mouth of the Rhône in the west. And between two trips exploring the Camargue, you’ll be able to enjoy an impressive range of activities available on the campsite itself. In brilliant sunshine, the campsite’s water park invites you to take a refreshing break in its swimming pools and waterslides. In the shade of the pines, head for the tennis courts or multisports ground for your very own family Olympics! Meanwhile, your little campers will be having a whale of a time with all the activities offered by the campsite’s free children’s clubs: games in the heated swimming pool, mini-disco, themed evenings... And since after all that effort everyone deserves to kick back and relax, get together on the terrace of your lodge or mobile home for a mouth-watering dinner to the song of the cicadas. Tomorrow, it’s time to head for the Camargue!

How to get there

From your campsite in southern France, whether by car or campervan, take the holiday road in the direction of Provence! First stop: Le Grau du Roi - Port Camargue for a visit to the Salonique Lake to enjoy a walk with the family. It will take you just 15 minutes to reach the mediaeval town of Aigues-Mortes, the western gateway to the Petite Camargue where the regions of Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur come together. Take some time out to explore this ancient walled citadel and visit the production site for the renowned Camargue salt. Then head on south along a road bordered by “manades” and hamlets ideal for stocking up on local specialities for your picnic. Once past the mouth of the Rhône, your route leads you to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and the bird sanctuary at the Pont de Gau, appearing to blend seamlessly into the surrounding waterscape, whilst Arles and its remarkable ancient heritage await you further east. Between the two, the fabulous natural setting of the Beauduc beach beckons: one of the largest sandy beaches on the Mediterranean!

The Camargue for all the family

In the Camargue nothing breaks the incredible panorama over the lagoons, marshes and rice fields that stretch as far as the eye can see. A natural refuge for innumerable species, from wild flamingos to its famous breed of white horses, the Camargue is a land that never fails to delight the nature-lovers that come to admire, visit and work for its preservation. For the family, it offers a range of activities that are ideal for getting to know and appreciate its incredible beauty!

Out and about in the Camargue

Not far from Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, set off for a walk along the sea dyke from the La Gacholle lighthouse. Whether for swimming or sunbathing, you can get to the many beaches via the footpaths and cycle tracks that follow along the edge the dunes. Accompanied by a “gardian”, the typical Camargue cowboy, take a horse or carriage ride from one of the “manades”: the ideal way to appreciate the diversity of the Camargue landscapes. Take the road towards Arles, stopping en route to visit the Maison du Riz in Albaron and discover all you ever wanted to know about rice-growing and the many rice-based products. The perfect way to enjoy tasting “local”. Beyond the Rhône delta, head for the marshes of Le Vigueirat, a vast natural area that is home to the largest protected reed bed in the Camargue. The convenient boardwalks on stilts offer the perfect way to observe its many migratory birds, Camargue horses and bulls!
