In the heart of Camargue, an immense plain of marshes and bogs, of lagoons and sand, dominated by salt which impregnates water and land. This huge, flat territory is an incredible botanical and zoological reserve with about 400 species of animals, both migratory and sedentary.
The indisputable lord of the region is the "Camargue" bull, and its constant companion is the beautiful, white horse, thought to descend from the horses brought from Asia Minor by Attila's hordes.
We will be hosted by a genuine personality of the Camargue, Mr Jacques BON, who will guide us through the festivities of the summer evening: running of the bulls, branding of calves with the name of the owner during what is known as the "ferrade", and a special "Corride", a dashing show in an arena where the purpose is to snap a red cockade hung between the horns of a bull, all leading up to a "Camarguais" dinner in the Bergerie, a converted sheep barn on Jacques Bon's ranch with a fife and drum corps, gipsy music and a roasted bull on the spit…
A country style, colorful, informal party on Monday evening, to get to know each other.
An event not to miss!
