Tel : +33(0)4 66 87 48 78
This excellent site is located on the edge of the Camargue region. Located about 30 minutes from the coast and 15 Minutes from Arles it is in an excellent location for touring the area. The site has large hard baked dust pitches with hedges dividing. There is an excellent swimming pool/bar complex. Whilst we were there, there were organised games around the pool during the day, much better than it sounds. There was also nightly entertainment in the Bar. St Gilles is about 5 minutes by car and offers all the basic requirements, supermarkets etc that you will require. It is also the home Abbey Church, a 7th century church that was a stopping of point on the pilgrim route. Arles is a far bigger city with many roman remains including the superb bullring where you can still see bull fighting to this day. It also offers modern shopping facilities including a selection of hypermarkets. The coastal town of Saints Maries de la Mer is only o short drive and offers sandy Mediterranean beaches as well as all you would expect from a French med coastal town.
There are many opportunities for horse riding in this beautiful area which will include passing flocks of Flamingos in their natural habitat.
The one downside of the area is the high level of mosquitoes in the area. The site is equipped with commercial sized mosquito killers but they struggle to keep on top of the problem.
