We wanted to get a feel for the Camargue so took the car from Arles to St Maries de la Mer which must be about 60km. It starts as just ordinary cultivated countryside but then changes into the type of scenery which I expected, the long reeds and waterways. There were bird watching and horse riding centres along the way.... More

I never knew a place like this still existed in Europe. The white horses and wild, black bulls were such a surprise. We walked along trails back into the water areas and saw Flamingos wading in the shallows. We felt like we were miles away from anywhere. We felt completely relaxed after our visit and bought the local salt to... More

We crossed on a ferry from Port saint Louis and were then in The Camargue Natural Park and Reserve. We drove for a couple of hours looking for the flamingos and the horses. We were lucky to find a spot where the flamingos were gathered. This was a trip that was very different from anything else I have seen in... More

We went by bus to Les Stes. Maries de la Mer and had a great view. Then we took a boat along la Petite Rhone.

Frankly, we were disappointed with Arles. We left in the morning and headed back to Montpellier by way of the Camargue. We headed to Salin-de-Giraud, which is a cute, rural village. Just past the village is an overlook of the salt ponds and the huge mountain of dried salt. We expected loads of birds here, but saw none. We cut... More

The Camargue is an awe-inspiring place. Saw many flamingoes, a beaver, lots of the Camargue white horses and the black bulls. Even a wild boar crossed the road in front of us. A good pace to explore by car, by bicycle or on foot.

We took a bus trip to the Camargue and found it to be interesting but not what we expected. We thought the horses were still wild but that is not the case. We did see horses, Bulls and in the bird park beautiful flamingos. This is well worth a visit. Not for everyone but another part of France we had... More

If you are in Arles,make sure you visit Camargue about 25 minutes drive.We really enjoyed the vast natural landscape.We saw thousands of flamingoes but they were not together,many wild white horses,acres of rice paddies ready to be harvested.

We first visited the Camargue many years ago, probably before there was such a thing as a nature park. It was then, and still is, an unusual bit of France, both in its history and visually, and worth a visit. There is now a good museum, very near Arles, that gives an good overview of the area, culturally and geographically.... More

We expected lot of wild horses and many birds. There were very few. The sights are nice and tranquil but we did not see much of living animals.
