Camargue, countryside and coast

Begin your trip at Pont de Gau Park in Saintes-Maries set within the Camargue Nature Reserve. By foot, on horse-back or by canoe, you can birdwatch to your heart's content in this unspoilt and well-preserved nature area. Invigorated, take a breather on the beautiful sand at Crin Blanc beach. For your second day, head to Arles for a spot of recreational fishing or a nature walk at La Capelière. After being totally immersed in the lives of the 'gardians' (Camargue herdsmen) at the Jacques Bon stud farm, watch the splendid sunset on the horizon in Arles.

Istres by Ma cigale est fantastique

The "Porte d’Arles" gives us direct access to the historical centre, which is well worth a visit. I suggest starting by the Tourist Office. This decidedly contemporary building reflects the spirit of the town at the crossroads of tradition and modernity. We will do a little shopping and then take a cultural and gourmet break. We will take a quiet stroll in the Etang de l’olivier gardens before going the other side to the Etang de Berre for a bite to eat.

Arles, cultural city break ancient and modern

Arles is an oasis of antiquity with its archaeology museum, Roman amphitheatre and the long-condemned ancient cryptoporticus. You'll travel back to the Middle Ages with a visit to the Church of St. Trophime and Montmajour Abbey that affords fantastic views all around. At the Fondation Van Gogh, learn about the painter's work and his influence on the art world, while the Réattu gives you an insight into 19th and 20th century art history. Don't forget to stop for lunch (we recommend J.L Rabanel) and follow that with more culture at the Actes Sud centre.

The forerunner of modern art, Cézanne is fittingly celebrated today in his home town of Aix-en-Provence, magnificently portrayed in his work. For the last 40 years, this illustrious painter has been setting the pace for the region's artistic life.
