This was listed as a big attraction in the area. We have been there three times and every time the gate was closed with a paper in front of it "Ferme". With no extra explanation why or when it would be open.

We enjoyed visiting this house particularly as the lovely guide was very good at explaining a few extras to us (in French). The grounds are beautiful. A visit will probably take about 2 hours, note there is no coffee shop.

This is an old chateau that was restored in the late 19th century by a wealthy industrialist from Marseille, who wanted a hunting lodge in the Camargue. What makes this chateau even more interesting is how the owner made use of "the latest" in technology...More

We stumbled by on our trip to Camargue and were pleasantly surprised. We actually had the house to ourselves (except for security) and had a great tour using the audio guide. The house was interesting in a Downton Abbey way and the grounds were beautiful....More
