Hostellerie Pont de Gau Camargue
Hello BirdingPal Admin -
I would like to provide a recommendation for birder-friendly accommodation in the Camargue region of Southern France.
My husband and I stayed at the Hostellerie Pont de Gau, just steps from the front entrance of the Ornithological Park of Pont de Gau in the Camargue. The Camargue is known for their healthy Greater Flamingo population, and the Ornithological Park is a magnificent place to see them. The owners of the Hostellerie are eager to assist visitors with other prime spots to go bird watching in the area; they also have items, such as bug spray, for purchase on site, which is necessary in the springtime :)
Place de l`Eglise - Mayenne
Lac du Der, Champagne
You can literally hear the Cranes calling from your bed. There is a bird logboook, which I initiated during a previous visit and the owner is very friendly and always keen to know, what we have seen. Birdingpal Stephen Boddington, Belgium belgianbirding(AT)gmail.com
Moulin du Pont
Le Pont Chretien, Indre
Les Trois Puits
La Conviviale B&B
B&B La Fleurette
Le bourg, Isle et Bardais
**Guesthouse La Rassada
Corbières Maritimes, Languedoc
On a major migration route, the area also hosts a large variety of resident birds. You can watch our resident Bonelli's eagles and golden eagles from the deck in front of the house some days! The coastal salt water lagoons host plenty of waders and other water birds, including flamingoes. The combination of resident and migrating birds ensures something interesting to see in both spring and autumn and is making this an increasingly popular destination for bird watching holidays.
I would like to offer Birdingpals a 10% discount at my B&B in the Languedoc (up to 20% for groups of 4 x 4 nights!).
