Camargue

South of France

Relax amidst the natural splendour of sun-bathed Camargue

Broad saltwater lagoons, golden beaches, expanses of tawny reeds teeming with pink flamingoes — Camargue, France, basks in sunshine most of the time. Romans plied these waters, and Crusaders followed. You can imagine the past as you approach fortress seaport cities like Aigues-Mortes, but beach resorts with zingy nightlife bring you frolicking back to the modern age!

The wild life is fantastic – Heron, Kingfisher, Flamingos, Horses and of course Ducks, Cormorants, and several different birds or prey
We started in St Gilles – Canal du Rhone (Camargue) and headed towards Sete this is a great choice for those of you that are new to boating or worried about locks as there are "NO LOCKS" Worth staying overnight as the town has a lot to offer as well as a great market on Sunday mornings there is also an Intermarche supermarket about 15 mins walk from the base Aigues Mortes was our first stop – great place with its walled city, winding streets and we were lucky enough to be there for one of the many festivals where the bulls run through the streets (no danger as they are guided by horses and the area is partition off with railings) Palavas-les-Flots is a large Mediterranean beach area with lots of cafes/restaurants/bars If you like peace and quiet try a stop at Mas d’Angouleme the beach is long (a bit pebbly) and almost deserted!! be aware there is a section for the naturists but it is very discreet The Abbey is also worth a stop but a long walk from the canal side – take your bike

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days from Port Cassafieres to St Gilles. We took our time but found we had time to spare toward the end of our cruise and went on to Beaucaire before returning the boat to St Gilles. Personally, we found the facilities at Beaucaire the nicest of all and the town much nicer than St Gilles which seemed a bit grubby and seedy and we couldn't even find a restaurant or cafe open on a Monday night! We made a point of stopping at each town along the way apart from Sete where we got totally lost so bypassed the town completely and tied up just out of town along the Canal de Rhone. We were troubled by mosquitoes for the next two nights - to be expected along the marshes but we saw lots of flamingo and horses. Our experience with the locks was easier than we though which was a relief. A word of advice - a spare cabin for luggage is a very good idea. We were two couples and on the advice of friends who had done Canal de Midi opted for 3 cabins. The cabins are very small and I don't know where you could store luggage apart from the living area if all cabins are occupied. Thoroughly recommended.

Relaxing in the sun shine on board
We arrived in Aigues Morte on festival weekend when the Carmargue bulls were let loose through the town and into an arena where the brave lads tried to avoid the charging bulls. Also listening to an excellent band in the square whilst having a meal later in the evening. Also enjoyed exploring the towns of Palavas and Carnon on cycle. Going to thr top of the tower in Carnon and experiencing magnificant views.
