This isolated farmstead, 400m down an unpaved track off the D85A just north of Stes-Maries-de-la-Mer, perfectly balances modern-day comforts with rural authenticity. Photographic portraits of the bull herder who created the hotel in 1955 (son Florian runs the three-star hotel with much love today) give the vintage dining room soul. Rooms sit snug in whitewashed cottages, some overlooking the water.
Swings in the paddock, horse riding with a gardian (cowboy), boules to play pétanque, and bags of open space make it a perfect family choice. This is Camargue living at its most relaxing.
