The Camargue is not just a nature destination, it is also a land of tradition. Come and stay at the Hôtel des 4 vents to discover this unique heritage which is the pride of the inhabitants of the region.
Arles, City of Tradition
Each year, the first day of May, in Arles, takes place the Fête des Gardians, to celebrate Saint-Georges, patron saint of horsemen. In the morning, you will see the Gardians and Arlésiennes in traditional costumes. In the afternoon, you can attend equestrian games, the horse being the emblematic animal of the Camargue. Don’t miss this unmissable event!
In addition, Provence and Camargue are one in the city of Arles, where you will celebrate the Rice Festival, as well as the Pegoulado (traditional festival in Provencal costume).
In winter, in Provence, tradition dictates that we reproduce a small village in figurines, small clay figures shaped and painted by hand. You will be able to reproduce the Camarguais village of your dreams in miniature.
Three quarters of an hour from the Hôtel des 4 vents, discover Arles, a city full of color and tradition!
The Horse and the Bull, Symbols of the Camargue in Celebration
When we talk about festivals in the Camargue, many think of férias, which literally means “celebration”. These festivals revolve a lot around two animals: the horse, and the bull.
The Camargue is very attached to the preservation of its traditions, while respecting animals. You can also meet them in semi-freedom if you walk in the marshes.
During the bullfighting games, a major tourist attraction for the area, you can observe riders trying to make bulls cross the city, or participants compete in the cockade game in the arenas.
