We explored this beautiful area of France - visited Arles and the flamingos of the Camargue. As well as l'isle sur la sourge market and Avignon. All within an easy 1hrs drive. Accommodation itself if brilliant, perfectly clean and modern. Comfy bed, fully equipped kitchen and lovely shower. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to stay in this area.

The welcome we had from Eric was very friendly and when we were shown into what was a stunningly decorated villa. The facilities were everything you need for a comfortable stay and some. Later that day we met our other host Carroll who was very pleasant and helpful giving us plenty of information about the surrounding area to make our holiday a very active one. Whatever you need both Eric and Carroll are eager to help. If you are thinking of visiting the camague area of southern France you couldn't do better than stop with these wonderful host's.
