La Tour Carbonnière - this ancient watchtower in the countryside was used to defend the only access to Aigues-Mortes. You can enter freely, visit inside and climb to the terrace where you'll enjoy an extensive view of Aigues-Mortes and the marshes of the Camargue.

Thanks to its serene climate, the country around Aigues-Mortes is a paradise for a huge number of birds whether migrating or sedentary. Benefiting from a nature and vegetation unique in Europe, it is well known to ornithologists the world over and can be discovered on foot, on horseback, by bicycle, by safari in a Land Rover or by boat all year round.

For a wealth of information on local activities, etc, we recommend a visit to the Tourist Office in the main square in Aigues-Mortes. Here is just a selection of things to do nearby…

Aigues-Mortes
Here you will find lots of restaurants, bars, banks, pharmacies, ATMs and lots of little shops. It is about a 15 minute walk from the house. When the swing bridge for the railway line is open this makes the walk a bit quicker.

Kids and adults can enjoy the little train that takes you around the town and in and out through the gates. English printed version of the commentary is available.

The carousel is worth a visit too, which stands across from the main entrance to the town. Always there in mid/high season and normally opens mid-morning.

Tower and Ramparts in Aigues-Mortes
Aigues-Mortes and its walls were built in 1240 by Saint Louis. The tower and its ramparts are one of the most well preserved medieval buildings, and well worth a visit. You can walk all the way around the town on the top of the walls and the view from the tower is great.

Market
There is an excellent market just outside the town of Aigues-Mortes on Wednesday and Sunday mornings, from 8am til about 12pm. If you turn right outside the station, go over the canal bridge and take the first or second left you will find the market further down the road. The fresh fruit and veg is cheaper here than at the supermarket. You can also buy clothes, bags, meat, cheese, etc.

Salin d'Aigues-Mortes
Route Grau-du-Roi, 30220 Aigues-Mortes
It is worth a visit to these enormous salt flats that are such a feature of Aigues-Mortes. A little train takes you around in about 90 mins and there is an informative printed English version of commentary. They harvest the salt in September so more to see towards the end of the summer, but still very interesting any time and for young and old alike. Reasonably priced at around 27 euros for family of 4. Mossies can be an issue as there is lots of standing water.

Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer
This is a lovely town in the Camargue with lots of good shops, a church and a beach. Definitely worth a visit. About 25/30 mins drive from Aigues Mortes.

L’Espiguette
This is a lovely wide sandy beach, more remote than the others. It is known as ‘The king of Languedoc’s beaches’. There is a basic, but good beach restaurant called Les Pieds Nus where you can hire sunbeds, grab a simple but tasty lunch and access basic toilet/shower facilities. As the beach is so wide and open it is best to avoid windy days.

Kangoo Beach
Inflatables park on the beach at La Grande Motte. It is a little pricey, but if your kids love bouncy castles then there are about 6 big ones for them to enjoy. Go early in the high season as it gets very hot.

It is about an hour’s drive and the steam train will take you from Anduze to St Jean du Gard, where you can get off and have a wander or have lunch and then return. You can also get off on the way and visit the bambouseraie – a bamboo plantation with an amazing 1.5 hr walk. Do check the timetable on the website as the train does not run every day.

RESTAURANTS IN AIGUES MORTES
Here is a selection of good local restaurants we have eaten at recently. We advise that you book a table in advance if you are staying in peak season as it can get busy.

Chez Coco
19 Grand Rue Jean Jaures 08 99 02 31 06
Traditional French. Small inside, tables on the pavement outside. The shoulder of lamb cooked on the fire is very good. Service can be a little brusque.

Le Dit-Vin
6 Rue du 4 Septembre 04 66 53 52 76
French. The food is good and the setting lovely. Good bar for pre-dinner drinks too. Reserve a table up on the roof level outside – a different perspective of the town.

Banaras Restaurant Indien
5 Bis Rue Emile Jamais 04 66 80 95 15
Indian. If you fancy something a little different then give this a go. Great owner, good food.

Saint Amour
5 Rue Sadi Carnot 04 66 73 37 29
French, modern. This restaurant is very different from most you will find in the town; it is modern inside. Fresh, simple and very well cooked food. Good value for a set menu.

Boem
253 Avenue du Pont de Provence 04 34 28 42 30
Mediterr-asian! The setting is shabby chic, right by the canal. The chef at this restaurant is excellent. If you like Asian inspired food, you can’t go wrong.

Patio’Ne
16 Rue Sadi Carnot 04 6 65 65 01 97
French, modern. A lovely restaurant for a special occasion. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. A work of art on the plate.

Aqueste-Ko
5 Rue Emile Jamais 04 66 51 81 77
Gourmet burgers. Great for something different. Really tasty and unusual burgers (or classic if you’d prefer). Sebastien is a great host.

Pizza Amigos
460 rue des Marchands, ZA Terre Camargue 04 66 51 32 74
Takeaway pizza. Really good pizza on the industrial zone 2 mins drive from the villa. Just watch out for the rather strange variations in toppings/cheese. Best to specify exactly what you want, i.e. ‘une pizza avec mozzarella et tomate’ will get you a margherita. Otherwise it’s made with emmentale, tomato and ham. There should be a menu in this folder.

Restaurants change hands/chefs and it is always worth checking the most recent reviews on tripadvisor.com before you go.
