At around 1h30 Away from Le Clos Geraldy B&B at St Maximin la Ste Baume, The village of Saintes Marie de la Mer, a place of warm reception, tradition and pilgrimage, is built between sky and sea, where the Rhone meets the Mediterranean Sea. In the shade of its Romanesque steeple, visitors can stroll through the narrow paved streets, following the tracks of the pilgrims. From the village, visitors feel the attraction of the dunes, the sandy beachesand the large marshlands with reeds and “manades” (herd of black bulls and white horses). As they love nature and wild lands, they can enjoy the pleasure of exploring the landscape by foot or on horseback, admire the dance of birds, yield to the euphoria of sailing and sliding on a windy day. Les Saintes Maries de la Mer rises as the capital of the Camargue for those who fall in love with this region, bewitched by its wild beauty, its culture and its lively and authentic traditions.
