My husband and I are finalizing the final week of our Provence vacation in May. The Camargue sounds great but haven't seen too many postings about this area. We'd like to stay in a farmhouse, know more about the beaches, mosquitoes. The Pelerinage des Gitans will be going on while we are there. Worth going or not?

1. Re: Camargue

We love the Camargue and spend a great deal of time there (particularly on the beach). Tourists have not yet discovered how enjoyable the area really is and for seafood lovers, it is paradise (although bulots, tellines, and violets are not widely appreciated). Beach rentals are affordable, the bird reserves are fascinating, horseback riding is everywhere and a lot of fun, and the local wines are excellent and inexpensive.

Here is website with a lot of photographs which should give you a better feel for the area.
