Come and discover the Aigues-Mortes saline by staying at the Hôtel des 4 vents. Whatever the season, this unmissable site of the Camargue will amaze young and old with its singularity.
A Special Environment
The Camargue is dotted with salt marshes. You can’t walk around there without meeting one.
Salt marshes are areas with a high level of salinity, which allow a specific biodiversity to develop there. The region takes the protection of the environment very seriously, and you can thus be accompanied in your discovery of the marshes by a specialized guide.
In fact, over three quarters of the bird species you will encounter here are protected. In addition to this, the Camargue is a migratory crossroads for many species, which makes it an essential region in maintaining global and sustainable biodiversity.
However, if you are a budding botanist, the salt marsh flora will amaze you. The Mediterranean climate and the salinity of the soil make salines a favorable place for the development of specific species such as the famous sea lily.
A Local Product
No matter where you shop, you’ve already crossed Camargue salt in the shelves. This very special salt can only crystallize under the combined effect of sun and wind, which will allow the ponds to dry effectively.
In the Camargue, this tradition dates back to Antiquity, and since then salt workers have followed one another, from generation to generation. Thus, they perpetuate a thousand-year-old tradition, while modernizing the techniques for harvesting Camargue fleur de sel, in order to delight your taste buds.
Come and visit the Aigues-Mortes saltworks as a couple or as a family. You can walk there, or by bike, but also by 4×4 or by small train. Discover this unique place by spending your next vacation at the Hôtel des 4 vents.
