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. 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.
