Think of this as France’s outback, without the marsupials. Troops of white horses run through fields of purple flowers while flamingos fly over lagoons of blue water. It’s all very surreal-feeling, but rest assured it is very real indeed. The natural preserve is accessible by car, though it’s best to soak up the beauty by bicycle to really see all the Camargue has to offer.
