A “manade” is a herd of Camargue bulls and/or horses.

The breeders’ work with the Camargue bulls is a family story. Bulls are wild and fascinating animals with an honest nature. The “manadiers” and “gardians” consider them almost like their own children and live at their pace. Respect for these frank and powerful animals who live all year in semi-freedom, at home on their pastures, is the driving force of their relationship. The purpose of a “manade” is to breed a great “cocardier” from the herd, giving value to the work of a lifetime. While in the heart of the Petite Camargue, you may have the privilege of being welcomed by these enthusiasts who will open their doors to you and share something of their way of life. It is an invitation to discover rather than a ‘show’. In a way, you will become part of the family.

Camargue “manade” and gatherings

Some “manades” exclusively welcome groups for discovery days, but some receive individuals. This is by appointment only, as the “manadiers” try to reserve farm visits for small groups. Various options are available depending on when you visit. They will welcome you either during the day or in the evening for a Camargue gathering with a typical regional meal. Our “manadier” partners offer these Camargue gatherings throughout the summer - find them in the events calendar.
