Aigues-Mortes is a 12th century walled city that is a jewel. It is situated in the department of Languedoc. The city itself is a perfectly maintained walled city that was built as a departure point for the crusades. The town is enclosed within the fortifications with grid like streets supporting the shops and restaurants enclosed within.

The canal systems around the town are at the point where the Canal Du Midi and the Rhone/Sète canals meet from this there is a short canal leading to Grau Du Roi and the Mediterranean sea.

Adjacent to Aigues-Mortes is the Camargue national park home to the famous black bulls, flamingos and the magnificent white horses. Within this area there is a fantastic variety of wildlife to see and the park itself has many stables organising guided tours within the park on horseback.
