Things to see and do
What do you dream of for your next holiday? Relaxation, nature, cultural and historical treasures or a festive and sporting holiday? Our beautiful region has everything you need and more!
Fine sandy beaches and transparent seas for lazing around and water sports (sailing, water-skiing, wake-boarding, jet-skiing, etc.), the Camargue for nature and its exuberance of flora and fauna, accessible towns steeped in history (Nîmes, Montpellier, Uzès, etc.) where it’s good to stroll and discover new things, and fun-filled towns (Grau-du-Roi with its theme parks and aquarium, Palavas-les-Flots, etc.) all right next door to your campsite in La Grande-Motte! You’ll love coming to visit us!
It’s also a gourmet region for your taste buds: feast on our sun-drenched fruit and vegetables, our freshly caught fish and seafood and sample our wines from the vineyards of neighbouring Languedoc!
Nestled amidst the sea, mountains, and towns, Montpellier presents a diverse array of landscapes where the Southern light dances playfully. Take a stroll around the famous Place de la Comédie, one of the largest pedestrianised areas in Europe, admire the medieval streets of the city centre, and enjoy the entertainment, shows and fine dining – in short, the joys of life!

Fortified Citadel and Saltworks
Experience the medieval charm of the impressive walls and monumental towers (including the famous Tour Constance) of Aigues-Mortes. Enter the walled town and discover its incredible religious heritage, medieval festivals, gastronomy, wine and bullfighting culture. Aigues-Mortes is also renowned for its exceptional flora and fauna and for its salt production at the Salins du Midi. A must-see!

Le Pont du Gard
This ancient aqueduct has witnessed twenty centuries! Take in the views from the top of this incredibly well-preserved masterpiece of ancient times. Unless you prefer to swim in the waters of the Gardon river, which it spans, or canoe under one of its large arches? It’s sure to be a day to remember!
As if set on the water, Sète will seduce you with its varied landscapes: wild natural spaces, the Thau lagoon, secret coves, sandy beaches, not forgetting the canal where nautical jousts unfold. Climb to the very top of Mont Saint-Clair and admire the 360° view. If you’re a fan of ‘Tomorrow Is Ours’, come and see the sets of your favourite series in Sète!

It’s impossible to resist the medieval charm of Uzès! Lose yourself in the maze of narrow streets, climb to the top of the Tower and admire the panoramic view. Then head back down to its medieval garden, with its 450 varieties of plants, dream in front of its 17th- and 18th-century mansions and feast on local produce from the stalls of its Provencal market.
Nîmes is full of remarkably well-preserved archaeological treasures: the famous arena, of course (the best-preserved amphitheatre in the Roman world), but also the Temple of Diana (dating from the 1st century), the Tour Magne and the Maison Carré. Take a walk through history, stroll through the narrow streets and gardens and relax on the terraces! A bull-fighting town, the Nîmes féria is world famous.
50 km from the campsite
At the heart of the Camargue natural park, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer combines all the beauties of the Camargue: the beauty of its landscape, its flora and fauna, and the beauty of its soul as the home of the gypsies and a major place of pilgrimage. Come and visit its manades (bull and horse farms), admire its guardians (Camargue knights) and its rich historical and cultural heritage!
40 km from the campsite
Les Baux De Provence
Built on a rocky outcrop in the heart of the Alpilles Regional Park, the village of Les Baux de Provence offers exceptional views over Arles and the Camargue. A true open-air museum, with 22 listed monuments (Château des Baux, Saint-Vincent church, etc.) and its quarries of light, Les Baux de Provence attracts over a million visitors every year… for just under 400 inhabitants!
