- Home on the Rhone: River cruise reveals wild side of France
By Mark Sissons - Friday Aug 4, 2017
Here in the heart of France’s cowboy country where the violent winds of the mistral often blow, the bulls and the manadieres roam. Sipping Sable de Camargue, a sparkling local wine, on the shady porch of the rambling ranch house, patriarch Gilbert Arnaud points toward a candy-colored mirage shimmering in the distance. Today, a series of dams and locks — some as deep at 75 feet — make for smooth sailing as it flows through the western edge of Provence, France’s gastronomic and wine producing heartland. With its sun-baked Mediterranean climate, the Rhone Valley south of Lyon is ideal for grape-growing, and wine tastings are hugely popular at its more than 1,800 private wineries. Europe’s thousands of miles of rivers and canals have long been the continent’s commercial and intellectual lifeblood, carrying a steady flow of commerce, culture and ideas. From my vantage point on the Camargue’s sundeck as we cruise south toward the Mediterranean, little appears to have changed; we pass medieval castles, ancient cliffside villages, and fields of sunflowers, wheat and lavender. Distinguished by their lyre-shaped horns, champion Camargue bulls can bring their owners enormous prestige and plenty of prize money. According to Arnaud, they’re also exceptionally intelligent. “Some end up on the menus of Camarguais restaurants,” he says — as le steak de taureau or daube de taureau mode gardienne, a popular Provençale beef stew named after les gardiens, the French cowboys who wrangle them. Most, I learn, roam free in the Camargue’s marshes and salt flats, and on its endless stretches of deserted beach. [...] beloved ponies they are, given the prominent placement of a Camargue horse statue overlooking the main roundabout in Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, a popular Mediterranean seaside beach resort a few miles south of the Arnauds’ spread. According to legend, she was a servant washed ashore here in Biblical times along with saints Mary Magdalene, Marie-Jacobé and Marie-Salomé — the three Maries from which the town derives its name. Strolling along Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer’s seaside promenade in the midday heat, I pass pastel ice cream stalls, shuttered cafes, a deserted amusement park and children playing in the sand while their parents sunbathe on the stony beach. Standing in the exact spots where the Dutch master created some of his most famous works — including the “Bedroom in Arles” paintings, “Starry Night Over the Rhone” and “The Night Cafe” — is a popular bucket-list item among art history lovers. The largest Gothic building constructed during the Middle Ages, it is a magnificent stone labyrinth of chambers, cloisters, chapels, great halls and cavernous bedrooms where several renegade popes (called antipopes) who refused to recognize Rome’s authority — outlaws in Europe’s version of the Wild West — prayed, slept, ate, schemed and died. Between the gentle sound track of nature and the astonishing geologic wonders, however, the scene today is so removed from the bustling streets of Paris, the bistros of Lyon or the docks of Marseilles, it could be mistaken for another country. Back aboard the Camargue after touring some of France’s most rugged countryside, we depart for the voyage home, and after a final dinner of classic French dishes, I retire alone to the roof deck. The boat passes a tableau of orchards, fields, mountains and terracotta-roofed villages — and the same rippled lights in the water that added to Van Gogh’s unorthodox, untamed style.
