The region, once home to Cistercian and Benedictine monks, is largely agricultural to the north.

One of the most convenient and most serene ways to visit Camargue is on board a barge cruise. These unique floating hotels cut through the countryside quietly without disturbing the flora and fauna on the river banks. In addition, a barge cruise lets you visit multiple cities without the interruption and hassle of packing and unpacking and checking in and out of hotels. We offer five-day voyages on the 18-passenger "Le Phenician." The itinerary includes calls at Avignon, Arles and Aigues-Mortes in the heart of Camargue. In addition to enjoying this wild and wonderful part of France, guests are treated to gourmet meals with wine every evening, complimentary bicycles to help explore the region and a variety of shore excursions included in the cruise price.
