Camargue between land and water in houseboat Between land and water, the Camargue is a wonderful destination where you can have a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Being on a canal boat is, in that case, the perfect place to be. You can easily reach a beach on foot or on your bicycle to have a break near the Mediterranean Sea or to discover the wild side of the Camargue:

- It is a marshy land, with a large expanse of natural parklands and a magnificent Wild Bird preserve. There you can observe : pink flamingos, black bulls, wild horses and over 350 different species of wild birds.
- Be ready for adventure and experience real maritime cruising on the Lake Thau ! Many friendly harbours such as Marseillan, Bouzigues, Meze or Frontignan are open for delightful visits.

Do not miss the cultural oddities of:
- Aigues-Mortes, a medieval city whose history is linked to the kings of France. This town is protected by a 1640-meter-long rampart.
- Beziers, located in Cathare land that you will cross if you cruise towards the Canal du Midi. The Camargue is sunshine, nature and culture.

Many one-ways are available between the bases in the South, for short stays as well. However, because of hazards which may occur, a one-way cruise and its direction can only be confirmed 48h before departure.
