The Camargue, a flat marshy region just south of Arles formed by the Rhône delta, is famous for its salt flats, horses, bulls, cowboys, flamingoes . . . and rice. Rice cultivation in the area goes back to the 14th century, aided by the relatively constant temperature, bright light, and the beneficial effect of the Mistral (the north wind).
