Between sky and sea

In Provence, exactly in the Camargue region, there is a small village suspended between sky and the sea called Saintes-Maries de la Mer

Here amidst beaches, white horses who still live in the wild, pink flamingos and a rich artistic and cultural heritage, the journey becomes a fascinating adventure. 

But here, is Nature that shows all over its wild and fascinating face in the dunes and beaches that surround the old village.  Miles and miles of fine sand are home of the famous white horses of the Camargue.

This charming village has also many attractions worthy of note: not to be missed is the bird park Pont de Gau, with its rare species of bird, not-bloody bullfights that take place from Easter until the month of September and the colorful Provencal markets. Moreover, the excursion boats offer pleasant excursions to discover all of this very particular ecosystem and the fabulous bike rides through the beautiful landscapes that characterize this wild land.
