What do you dream of for your next holiday? Relaxing, exploring nature, discovering cultural or historical treasures, or enjoying active, festive holidays? Our wonderful region has everything you need, and more!
A sandy beach and crystal clear waters for relaxing and enjoying water sports (sailing, water skiing, wakeboarding, jet ski, etc.), Camargue for nature and its abundance of fauna and flora, friendly-sized towns brimming with history (Nîmes, Montpellier, Uzès, etc.) ideal for strolling around and exploring, and bigger party towns (Grau-du-Roi with its theme parks and aquarium, Palavas-les-Flots, etc.): all this is right by our campsite in La Grande Motte! You’ll love staying with us!
Our delicious region will also tempt your taste buds. Indulge in sun-kissed fruit and vegetables, freshly-caught fish and seafood, and wines from vineyards in the neighbouring Languedoc region!
Surrounded by the sea, mountains and towns, Montpellier offers a wide variety of landscapes across which the southern sun cheekily plays. Stroll around its famous Place de la Comédie, one of the biggest pedestrian spaces in Europe, admire the mediaeval lanes in its city centre, and enjoy its entertainment, shows and great restaurants. In short: experience its relaxed way of life!
Allow yourself to be swept away by the mediaeval charm of Aigues-Mortes’ impressive city walls and imposing towers (including the famous Constance Tower). Step inside this walled city and discover its amazing religious heritage, mediaeval celebrations, cuisine, wine and bullfighting culture. Aigues-Mortes is also famous for its outstanding fauna and flora and for its Salins du Midi salt production. A must-see!
Twenty centuries are looking down on you from this ancient aqueduct! Get up high and admire the view from the top of this amazingly well preserved engineering feat of the ancient world. Or perhaps you prefer swimming in the River Gardon’s waters spanned by the aqueduct or passing under one of its large arches in a canoe or kayak? You’ll enjoy a memorable day!
Sète almost floats on the water with its wide range of landscapes: natural unspoilt areas, Thau lagoon, hidden inlets, white sand beaches, and of course the canal where the water jousting takes place. Climb to the top of Mont Saint-Clair and admire the 360° view before you. Fans of ‘Demain Nous Appartient’ can find the settings of their favourite TV show in Sète!
It’s impossible to resist the mediaeval charm of Uzès! Lose yourself in the labyrinth of its lanes before climbing to the top of the tower to admire the panorama before you. Then head back down and experience the town’s intoxicating mediaeval garden with 450 plant varieties, daydream by its 17th and 18th century private manors and indulge in local products sold at its Provençal market stalls.
Nîmes is brimming with wonderfully preserved archaeological treasures: the famous arena of course (the best preserved amphitheatre in the Roman world), along with the Temple of Diane (dating back to the first century), the Magne Tower and Maison Carré. Stroll through history, wander the lanes and gardens, and relax on outdoor seating areas! Nîmes is a bullfighting city and its Féria is world famous.
In the centre of the Camargue nature reserve, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer combines every beauty: its landscape, flora, fauna and its spirit as a pilgrimage site and Gypsy gathering place. Come visit its ‘manades’ (bull and horse ranches), admire its ‘gardians’ (Camargue mounted cattle herders) and discover its rich historical and cultural heritage!
Built on a rocky spur in the heart of the Alpilles regional park, the village of Baux de Provence provides an outstanding view of Arles and Camargue. Baux De Provence is a veritable open air museum, with 22 listed monuments (Château des Baux, Saint-Vincent church, etc.) and the Carrières de Lumière exhibition space. The town attracts over a million visitors every year... yet only has just under 400 permanent residents!
