It is beautiful and relaxing. Even in January. But they say it's much more beautiful in the summer when birds arrive. In the winter time you can observe the Camargue black bulls though. They breed them for bull-fighting

If you want to get off the stress, just go to the Camargue and let yourself getting spoiled by the nature and the fantastic fresh air. After a few hours everything is falling off and you feel deeply relaxed.

A must-see for nature lovers. The herds of the white horses are beautiful, and seeing the flocks of flamingos is a once-in-a-lifetime for most people. Follow the back roads and just get lost in the peace and quiet.

We only had a quick glimpse of this area and it was fascinating. For France this place is unique, we never saw any place like it anywhere else in the country. It is flat marshland like territory, birds huddle around in the grass, if you're lucky there are wild horses but we didn't get that lucky. If you visit take... More

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.
