Camargue, the French Texas

by MPI Traveler on March 1, 2013

Camargue refers to the delta area of the Rhone River. It is sometimes called “the French Texas”, due to the unique wild and untamed spirit of the region. Out there, cowboys ride magnificent white horses while keeping herds of bulls on lands that are near the Mediterranean coast. Camargue is also known for the richness of its natural environment, and for the diversity and fragility of its ecosystem. About 5,000 pink flamingos have long ago made it their unique habitat in Europe, while wild horses run among the salt and rice fields. There are many wonderful guided tours of Camargue available, whether by horseback, foot, jeep or bicycle. Go as you please, but don’t forget the mosquito repellent! 

And, don’t forget to book your Spring getaway at Domaine de Saint Remy in the Petite Camargue.  Area tours by horseback or bicycle can be arranged. It’s a beautiful time to enjoy a glass of our estate wine and the sights of the Camargue!
