The ponies of the Camargue tend to be the focus for horse lovers on the French Mediterranean. While these animals and their gypsy traditions are well worth knowing, it is unfortunate that other riding opportunities in Southern France fade into the background. A saddle’s eye view of the spectacular landscapes of the Côte d’Azur combines mountains, seaside, vineyards and forests into a satisfying feast for all the senses. (After all, who would ride in France without sampling croissants for breakfast, and local wines for dinner?) The tourist organisation of the Esterel- Côte d’Azur has organised two mini-horse-breaks of three days and two night each in the area circumscribed by Cannes and Saint-Tropez. One is by the sea in Saint Raphael, the other among the vineyards of Fréjus. Each includes accommodation in local auberges, two days of riding and breakfast; the Fréjus alternative also includes dinner.
