Provence Trails - France

Luberon and The Camargue

5 star rating   27 September 2019

Susan (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Wonderful scenery, hard riding at times in the , but well worth it. | The riding was all I expected it to be, but I would have liked to have seen a better quality of tack and clean. Also the horses were extremely good and very willing but I felt they could have been cared for better. The riding was amazing and the scenery spectacular at times. We were disappointed that we were unable to go on the ferry to the Little Camargue, apparently the ferry was broken.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The last night's accommodation at Mas de Recaute was very poor, we weren't greeted or told where breakfast was to be served. We were taken to the 'upgrade' to eat with the other two riders on the trip and the food was not up the previous night's standard. The rooms were of a poor standard and we were told the upgrade was no better. This was disappointing as all the other accommodation was good and we were well looked after.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

On this particular holiday I feel you need to stress more the need for insect repellent on the last day, the mosquitos we awful riding up the side of the lake to meet the transport.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

Booking and payment was absolutely fine, no problems.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

It was disappointing that there are no longer any wild horses in the Camargue, I suppose if we'd researched it a bit ore we may have found that out for ourselves, but the information given seems to give the impression that we would have seen wild horses and bulls.

We all had a wonderful time and thank you for organising our holiday. I will use In the Saddle again, but I don't think I would recommend this particular holiday because the Camargue was a little disappointing. The mountains were amazing.
