HORSE RIDING TOURS IN SOUTH-EASTERN - FRANCE

Luberon, the heart of Provence

The heart of Provence is in the hills that connect the sea to the Alps. These are the sloping vineyards; the cultivated lands and the colorful scenery that charmed Cezanne (Aix en Provence), Van Gogh (Arles), Chagall or Giono. According to the area, we propose different trails all as interesting as the others.

Just off the Rhône Valley, basking in a perfect Mediterranean climate, the Luberon has, over the centuries, kept its assets - both cultural and natural - perfectly intact.

The Luberon, which has been a listed area (Parc Naturel Régional) since 1977, offers a wide array of quality offerings to satisfy the discerning tourist.

Its beautiful villages (Bonnieux, Roussillon, Lourmarin, Gordes...), its local products and craftwork combined with its ever changing landscapes will ensure you an unforgettable time in this revered part of Provence. For that we propose you different trails according to what you're looking for :

Camargue, a land of bulls and horses...

In the south of Provence, bordering the Mediterranean Sea, Camargue is a unique environment of marshlands bounded by two branches of the Rhône and the Mediterranean Sea. The mighty Rhone river meets the Mediterranean Sea in a huge delta where earth and water are deeply mixed.

The Camargue horse is one of the oldest breeds in the world, closely related to the prehistoric horses whose remains have been found elsewhere in southern France.

Haute Provence, between Provence and the Alps

The Lure Mountain in the north as a protective climatic barrier, and the Luberon in the south form the frontiers of Haute-Provence.

The Forcalquier area nestles between these two sleeping giants, with its narrow shady roads, winding along enchanted hills and valleys adorned with Romanesque chapels. In June and July, the hills are covered by lavender fields and you ride in the incredible scents of these millions of flowers...

In Roman times the Domitian Way crossed this fertile agricultural land. In the Middle Ages the Forcalquier area was an independent county. This was the period during which the typically Provençal perched villages developed.

This is a piece of countryside with an easygoing lifestyle, under a cloudless azure sky.
