"Ooh la la" meets "giddy up, pardner" in the Camargue wilderness of southern France. Just south of Arles, the town that provided inspiration for Van Gogh, the late Jacques Bon took his grandfather's property and transformed it into a gentleman farmer's estate. Meanwhile, his wife, Lucille, turned her architectural and design background to the original seventeenth-century building, transforming it into a stylish inn with just eight bedrooms and three suites. Bon's legacy is carried on by his son, Frédéric, who now runs the working farm to grow rice and raise horses, bulls and Merino sheep. Guests can learn about local ranching traditions by observing gardians (cowboys) tending bulls on their white horses. Highlights include roundups, nature discovery rides and meals in the stunning dining room, featuring Provençal cuisine.
