A day at The Marquises will engulf you in the universe of one of the largest manades in the Camargue
Seated on a trailer, in a horse-drawn carriage or on a horse, you will be the privileged witnesses of a unique spectacle:  horses and bulls of the Camargue, roaming free in the beautiful setting of the estate; in their natural environment. 
Accompanied by galoubets (pipe whistles) and drums you will enter the private arena of the Manade to discover the « jeux de gardians » where the cowboys compete in audacity and address under the eyes of the beautiful women from Arles, the « Arlésiennes ».
A dazzling and unforgettable demonstration of « course camarguaise »  will follow from there.  Then, come evening, the corrals will resound with the sounds of the dances and traditions of Provence and later, in the heat of the night, with those of the gypsy guitars. 
At your request, the Manade is able to organise for you various spectacles:  Mexican riders, a medieval games, a rodeo...
