DISCOVER THE PROVENCE ON HORSEBACK
Between sea, hills and mountain:

The Provence, is bordered by the Alps to the north, and the Mediterranean to the south, it stretches from the Rhône river in the west to the Italian border in the east. An ideal location for exploring varied landscapes on horseback in the sunniest region of France: more than 300 sunny days per year in Provence !

The sea:

The Camargue, with an area of more than 930 km2 (360 mi2), is the largest river delta in Western Europe: an island in a way, because it is entirely surrounded by water between the Mediterranean, Petit and Grand Rhône. It is a vast plain composed of large lagoons or brine ponds, cut off from the sea by sandbanks and surrounded by marshes covered with reeds which are themselves surrounded by a large cultivated area. It is home to over 400 species of birds, with brine ponds being one of the few European habitats for the flamingo. The Camargue is known for the breeding of horses and bulls. The Camargue is the land of horses in Provence !

The hills and mountain:

The Mont Ventoux, at 1909 meters, is the highest peak in Provence. It is located in the Vaucluse. To the north, the mountain borders the department of Drôme. It is nicknamed the "Giant of Provence", or "Bald mountain". Although geologically part of the Alps, it is often considered separate, due to the lack of mountains of similar height nearby. It is located north of the Luberon massif, and east of the Dentelles de Montmirail: its buttresses. The top of the mountain is bare limestone with no vegetation or trees. The white limestone on the bare peak of the mountain means that it looks like snow from afar all year round (its snow cover actually lasts from December to April).
The Luberon, is a natural park, a low mountain range which stretches from east to west between the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and the Vaucluse, and which includes three "mountains": the eastern Luberon, the Grand Luberon and the Petit Luberon . It is home to an exceptionally diverse flora and fauna as well as an architectural and landscape heritage of great value.
The Alpilles, sont une chaîne de petites montagnes situées à environ 20 kilomètres au sud d'Avignon. Bien qu'elles ne soient pas particulièrement hautes, culminant seulement à 387 mètres, les Alpilles se démarquent en s'élevant brusquement de la plaine de la vallée du Rhône. La chaîne s'étend sur environ 25 km de long sur environ 8 à 10 km de large, dans une direction est-ouest entre le Rhône et la Durance. Les Alpilles ont été souvent peintes par Van Gogh, entre ses falaises calcaires et vastes champs d'oliviers.
The Sainte-Victoire, est probablement la montagne la plus connue de Provence, grâce au peintre Paul Cézanne, qui a pu l'admirer et la peindre fréquemment. C'est une crête de montagne calcaire qui s'étend sur 18 kilomètres entre les départements des Bouches-du-Rhône et du Var. Son point culminant est le Pic des mouches à 1011 m.
The Haute-Provence, le pays de Giono ! Entre le sud des Alpes et la basse Provence, ses paysages sauvages alternant avec ses champs de lavande et ses villages perchés, la Haute Provence est une destination particulièrement agréable à parcourir à cheval en été pour profiter de ses parfums et de ses couleurs.

WHEN TO GO ON HORSEBACK TO PROVENCE

The climate of Provence is Mediterranean. A mild and temperate climate.
Summer: Temperatures most often exceed 30 ° in the middle of the day. The nights are pleasant, around 20 °.
Winter is the cold season, and is often sunny. Average temperatures are 10 to 15 °.
Spring and autumn are less dry and the rains are sometimes abundant but generally of short duration.
The best seasons to go on horseback are spring and fall. In spring, the almond trees start blooming in February, the other fruit trees in April and May. Autumn is very pleasant in Provence, until the end of October: a generally very mild month.
