The Camargue offers plenty for outdoor lovers with beautiful walks, remote beaches, wildlife safaris and of course horse-riding on the indigenous white horses. Boat trips can be arranged on the Petit Rhone as it meanders south towards the sea, through the Camargue delta. The delta, famed for its salt is host to abundant wildlife including the flamingo.
For culture, venture into Arles, a stunning city with 2000 years of history. Dotted with Roman and Romanesque monuments the city is on the Unesco World Heritage List and the incredible Roman amphitheater still plays host to events. For art lovers, the Vincent Van Gogh Foundation is worth dropping by with a mix of temporary and permanent exhibitions.
With children, the amphitheater will surely enthrall in Arles, not to mention the swamp wildlife, pretty beaches and chance to canoe and horse-ride.
