As true natives, we have so far managed to preserve our heritage! It is thanks to this that the traditional expertise of the past can still be seen at the Mas Saint Germain. In terms of farming, it is thanks to André, representing the second generation, who reorganised the estate, introducing vines and rice in particular.
Then, Pierre continued along the lines of a balanced mixed farming system, which is rare in the Camargue, and introduced the breeding of Camargue horses and bulls. The vineyards were replaced by pastures.
It was Monique who created the activity of rural tourism, bringing back to life the entire estate of remarkable, traditional buildings of St Germain, including a sheepfold, dovecote, stable, mansion, bread oven, caretaker's outbuilding, shepherd's outbuilding, housing for agricultural workers, and a cellar.
Laure, Anne and Germain, Pierre and Monique's children, strive to maintain this fragile balance by devoting all their time and energy to the smooth running of the wide variety of activities that make up the estate
Near Etang de Vaccarès, in the middle of the rice, wheat fields and meadows, Mas Saint Germain breeds Camargue horses and bulls. The old estate buildings renovated in 5 charming gites or spacious guest rooms, a bit of this vast property history anchored in the Camargue culture. You can soak up these lands wild character during your stay travelling through these 200 hectares of nature on horseback or by 4x4.
