The "Manades" are bull and/or horse farms.
The work of breeders with the Camargue bull is a family affair. Bulls are wild and fascinating animals that don't cheat. The manadiers and guardians at their side, consider them almost like their own children and live at their own pace. Respect for these frank and powerful animals who live all year round in semi-freedom, "at home", in their pastures is the driving force behind their relationship. The purpose of a herd is to "bring out" a great cockadeer from the herd and thus be able to value the work of a lifetime. You may have the privilege in this Heart of Petite Camargue , to be welcomed by these enthusiasts who will open their doors to you in order to pass on a piece of their life to you. It is an invitation to discovery and not a show that they are going to share with you. You will “ become part of their family ”.
Discovery days and Camargue evenings
Some "manades" exclusively welcome groups during discovery days , but some welcome individuals.
This is by appointment only, with herders trying to book farm visits for small groups .
Various options are available depending on the time of your visit. They will welcome you either during the day for visits to the farm on foot, in a horse-drawn carriage or in a 4X4, or in the evening for a Camargue evening with a typical meal from the region. Our "manadiers" partners offer these events throughout the summer - find them in the agenda.
