Make a holiday rental property or villa in Camargue, France your home away from home

The Rhone Delta, otherwise known as the Camargue is a triangular region in Provence bordering the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Western Europe’s largest delta, the Camargue is an area of exceptional natural richness, with many species calling the marshy landscape home, especially birds and the famous Camargue horse.

Things to do in Camargue, France

Much of the Camargue is waterlogged, from the saltwater lakes, or etangs, to the huge marshes of Camargue. This inaccessible, unforgiving terrain is home to an astonishing range of wildlife, and nature lovers flock from every corner ofEuropeto enjoy the phenomenal nature trails that cut through the area. Named as a national park, the Parc Regional de Camargue, there are many excellent routes to choose from, and with over 800km ² to explore, you will never run out of countryside to explore! The Camargue horse is a magnificent animal, and is one of the world’s oldest breeds. Smaller than normal horses, Camargue horses are still used to herd cattle on the watery delta, and offer one of the finest ways to explore the region for tourists.

Walking, cycling and horse riding holidays are fantastically popular in the Camargue, letting you get close and personal with the bulls, birds and muskrats that call the Camargue home. The Camargue tourism offices have details on all the best routes, riding stables and bicycle hire centres in the region.

The Parc Ornothologique de Pont de Grau is a world famous nature reserve dedicated to protecting the many species of birds living on the Camargue. Flamingos are the most visible birds that frequent the marshes, with their pink feathers highlighted against the greens, yellows and browns of the landscape. Owls, hawks, vultures, stork, heron and egrets can all be spotted on occasion too. The Musee Camarguais and the Reserve National de Camargue tourism office are both well worth exploring before you set out into the countryside from your self catering Camargue accommodation.

                                                                                  This apartment is ideally situated just a few minutes' stroll from the centre of Arles old town. It is bright, modern and comfortably furnished and very well equipped. When we stayed for ten days the weather was extremely hot and the air-conditioning was blissful and very easy to control. There is a very pretty patio-style garden which we used very little because it was too hot to sit outside, but there is a shaded covered area for outside dining. There are very efficient electrically- operated steel shutters to all the windows, which means that you can leave your valuables (passport, cash, jewellery etc) safely at the apartment when you go out. There is also secure underground car parking if you need it. We travelled by train and the property manager Yvette kindly met us at the station and drove us to the property, showed us around and explained how everything worked and where to find what we needed. This was a great help at the end of a hot day's travelling. The apartment was spotlessly clean on our arrival and we felt very comfortable straightaway. The nearest restaurant and bar were about two minutes' walk away and many more were within ten to fifteen minutes' slow stroll from the apartment. There is also a bakery and a pharmacy within about a hundred yards. Arles has a great selection of restaurants - our favourite was Café Georges on the Boulevard Clemenceau. The Tourist Office is on the same stretch, about ten minutes from the property, and although constantly busy, they are very helpful and pleasant. They helped us to book places on a half-day minibus trip to visit the Pont du Gard, St Remy and Les Baux. Other excursions available. We also visited the Fondation Van Gogh, and saw no less than 31 original oils that Vincent painted here, in their summer exhibition. We walked around different parts of the old town every day - it is very compact and easy to find your way around, and when the Arena suddenly appears in front of you at the top of a narrow street, it is truly breathtaking. There are far too many events taking place to mention them all - Arles is a great centre for the art and culture of many nations and has a huge modern museum near the Rhone, which you can get to using the free shuttle bus which leaves from opposite the Tourist Office every 30 minutes. We had a truly fabulous holiday and this property and this lovely apartment was an ideal base. I recommend it unreservedly.

You have your own private place with table to rest and grill. The garden with the pool lovely - it is for you till 4 p.m. and you are there alone-the owners of the property live in the house beside, but you do not see them, they work and are very discret when they are at home. The location is very good, you have 5 to 7 min by bicycle to the town and to the lovely beach. Maria, Poland

The house is a proper family place (just as in the pictures) with two bedrooms upstairs and a downstairs annexe (double bedroom/study space/shower room). Pascale is a charming and efficient host (she owns a flower shop in Arles) and her on-site parents, Jackie and Michel made us incredibly welcome (chilled Rose on arrival, fresh bread on our first morning, great market advice etc) but also respected our privacy. Top tourist tips: the bull racing (not fighting!) in the Roman amphitheatre in Arles; the Plage de Napoleon (kilometres of empty sand at the end of a fab drive in the Camargue) and, most especially the awesome (and it really does deserve this word) Carrières de Lumières – a quarry/cave space 25 mins away with monumental moving artworks (this year Klimt) and music. Hmm. I think I’ve persuaded myself to go again.
