Have you ever heard of Camargue ?
Camargue is green region located in the south-east of France, mostly swampy. There, we notably practice rice cultivation and bull breeding.

Astonishing sunrises, the pink flamingos flights… You have not finished to be dazzled yet !

Impossible to speak about Camargue without thinking about Manade !
What is a Manade ?
There is not a direct translation for this practice, but a Manade is mainly spread in Camargue region in provence, or in the little Camargue of Languedoc. The manade deals with a cattle horse herd and the place where they are grazing on.
Nearby the pond of Vendres, the Manade Margè is one of this magic places : a natural space ranked where bulls and horses are living in peace and harmony.
Every Thursday from the month of June, you can participate to a discovery day ! The tinged manade proposes you an introduction to horse manageability in the Monteilles arenas and a guided and commented tour about breeding by towed trailer.
Here are some great memories to bring at home in some sensational and typical places of our region !
