About Camargue

Relax amidst the natural splendor of sun-bathed Camargue

Broad saltwater lagoons, golden beaches, expanses of tawny reeds teeming with pink flamingos — 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 Canal du Midi leaves off at Étang du Thau, France’s second largest lake, and sets your path on the Canal du Rhône à Sète extending 98 kilometers (61 miles) all the way to beautiful Beaucaire. A look at a Camargue map reveals that you’ve entered a natural wonderland filled with undeveloped lakes and fronted with beaches right on the Mediterranean Sea. The country is low and flat, and the salt air invigorates as you travel to medieval fishing villages and cities. Loosely translated, the name of the canal means “canal from Rhône to Sète,” indicating its route from the Rhône River near Beaucaire south into the wetlands that make Camargue, France, such a special place. Here you’ll find real-life guardian cowboys, bull fighting, Romany gypsy festivals, luscious fresh oysters and superb Costières de Nïmes wines found in the cellars of Gallician.

It is said that the ancients built settlements in the Camargue and traded goods with their brethren in the Rhône Valley. Sète thrived in part because of the age-old Canal de la Radelle running to Aigues-Mortes. Eventually, lakes north of Sète silted in and the appropriately named Lakes Canal was dug. Born of more than 150 years of effort, the Canal du Rhône à Sète finally linked three canals together to create a single artery in 1811.

The Camargue is easy to navigate and great for beginners due to the low number of locks.

 

Notes : Use caution on Étang du Thau in strong winds.

Take a look at our waterway and lock closures page to keep up to date with the cruising conditions across all of our regions.

The Camargue region has no locks except for one near Beaucaire, so it is perfect for anyone new to cruising or looking for an easy cruising experience.

It is best to moor in the harbours at night. Moorings at marinas costs from a few euros up to 30 euros in peak season but offers electricity and water refill. We recommend you to call the Marina a few hours before your arrival to book a place. You could also moor where you want to along the canal thanks to the ropes and spikes on-board your boat. Please do not cross the pathway with the ropes in order to keep allow the passage of walkers and cyclists.

Passing barges could pull you away from makeshift moorings and roll you with wakes.

We have used Le Boat many times before. As always nothing is too much trouble and the boat was amazing. We will definitely be back again. We had a Horizon 1 from St Giles which was a great starting point and friendly boat base. We cruised to beautiful Aignes Mortes with my wife and 8 month old. The boat's design and equipment made it easy.

Our boat was in a good condition on arrival, however there was a fowl smell in the main cabin and the training were very rushed for four novice ladies . We actually learned more from strangers on our trip but managed the boat without any damage during our trip. The boat's batteries do not last for more than a day and start peeping in the early morning hours. Never the less we had a great trip and we would recommend le boat any time. Beautiful scenery, not to many locks, lovely small villages to explore
