Provence Trails - France

Luberon and The Camargue

5 star rating   20 October 2018

Zipper who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Beautiful Provence. Great variety of scenery with professional guide and horse. | I rode a lovely little horse called Carmen who was such a professional and gave me safe uncomplicated five days on the trail.
The variety of the scenery from the Alpilles looking over to Les Baux in the evening sunshine to the uniqueness of the Camargue,,actually wading through the marshes is reason enough to go on this holiday. Plenty of forest trails,the rocky garrigue,fascinating apple orchards and flat marshland meant that there was so much to see.
We had some really good gallops especially on the beach where the hard working horses found a speedy fifth gear.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

There have been quite a few reviews about this holiday describing the accommodation as not luxurious.
The hotels in the Camargue were fine but certainly the chambres d'hotes were fairly basic. But all clean with comfy beds and more importantly a very high standard of food and hospitality. Great evening meals and good wine.
