Stables: Camargue horse riding & carriage rides
The hotel has had its own stables and its own horse team since 2019, managed by Charlotte Maurey. The equipment is of high quality, the horses are adapted, chosen by us for your comfort and safety.
Don't expect to find the horses in the boxes, the idea is unthinkable for Charlotte, a native of the region. The horses are spread out in different parks, and only go through the box when they are out for a ride, to enjoy a meal and to be quietly saddled. Each horse is worked on by the instructors and enjoys a variety of activities. You are with horses that are full of life and happy with their escapade. All are fed with Foin de Crau - AOP.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider, Charlotte and her team will help you discover the beauty of the Camargue during your horseback ride and the secrets of a still wild fauna and flora, the birds through the ponds, lagoons and beaches of Saintes-Maries-de-la Mer.

Since the end of March 2021, the stables have been offering a new service of carriage rides. Two carriages and three Comtois mares, from a breeding farm in Megève, have been acquired for this service. As for the horse rides, a 12-seater carriage is available for classic rides and a smaller 4-seater carriage for VIP rides. And if the Comtois and their carriage cannot take the same paths as our Camargue horses, Charlotte assures that you will see the same landscapes.
