Postal Adress ?

We are located in the heart of the village of Salin-de-Giraud (commune of Arles) at the address 12 rue de Provence. We have a private car park to welcome you serenely.

Bac de Barcarin

The Bac de Barcarin is a boat that travels on the Rhône River and transports cars from one bank to the other on the Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône and Salin-de-Giraud side. We do not have a bridge at Salin-de-Giraud. The price of the crossing is 6€ for a car and 10€ for a camper or van. You can find the exact timetable on their website.



When you come from Montpellier, head towards Arles or the Etang de Vaccarès if you want to stroll and enjoy the scenery. Then follow the direction of Salin-de-Giraud/Piémanson beach.

If you are coming from Marseille, you can take the Bac de Barcarin to go faster or you can go through the town of Arles to bypass the Rhone river.
