Aigues-Mortes, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Additional Location Information
The Aigues Mortes / Port Du Roy area
Aigues Mortes was built in the 13 century by King Louis and prospered as a coastal trading port for many years. One of it's main exports was and still is salt and the factory just outside the town is well worth a visit. Located next door to the factory is the Listel Vineyard. There are many more vineyards locally if you wish to sample the local wine.
This is a splendid walled town on the edge of salt marshes in the Camargue. You can make a complete circular walk of over 1.5km around the town walls (open 9.30am - 7pm in the summer). We recommend that you allow at least 1 hour for the walk, after which you should not miss the chance to browse in the tourist shops in the narrow streets of the old town. Also you should plan to have a snack or a meal in one of the many restaurants in the Place St-Louis – this is not haut cuisine but the environment is outstanding and the chances are that one of the local entertainers will pass by while you are eating.
For a lovely day out you can start at the nearby child friendly beach at Le Grau-du-Roi, then perhaps move to La Grande Motte (beach, golf and large marina capitainerie restaurant excellent value),Port Camargue(another marina based town with extensive beaches (and nudist too for those inclined) or Montpellier for some shopping, finishing off the day with an evening in one of the many street cafés in Aigues Mortes.
The most comprehensive and various cruises on the canal and the med are available and there is a commentary by a local inhabitant.
Fishing (River and sea) surrounds you or just throw your line over the garden fence outside the house.
Crossing of the port along the city wall, close to the salt company “Les Salins du Midi", discover the fishing harbour of Le Grau du Roi and the flora and fauna of Camargue through the locks of the Vidourle River, the big reed bed, the Tour Carbonnière, the Bourgidou Canal and its locks in the middle of ancient barges.
50 minutes away is Pont Du Gard, a magnificent 3 tier roman viaduct which still stands to this day and has an absolutely amazing museum which lays out the method of construction in a manner easy for children to understand. There is also an excellent (although expensive) restaurant with excellent views overlooking the gorge that the viaduct spans.
Nimes (which the viaduct fed with water over 50km away) and Arles also provide examples(better in my view than the Rome version) of coleseums which are still used for displays, the Camargue version of bullfighting(the bulls stay alive) and concerts.
