The French version of the Lousiana wetlands is the region of Camargue, a protected national reserve famous for its rice and salt beds, Camargue horses and bulls and unique wildlife and flora. A Camargue farm is called a manade and its cowboys are manadiers. Patrick is a third-generation manadier breeding Camargue horses and bulls, raising them in semi-liberty as manades traditionally do. His farm"Les Marquises" is one of the most renowned manades of Camargue for the family's contribution to the organization of Courses Camarguaises as well as to the extraordinary animals bred there - Goya the bull and Esterel the horse, among others. Speaking English is no problem in this manade and Patrick and his wife Estelle are wonderful hosts, so proud to share their passion for their region with visitors. Check out their Facebook page for more information Les Marquises - Manade Laurent.
