The Camargue (South France, on the Mediterranean) provides the perfect conditions for salt production: sea, sun, high temperatures – and the mistral wind blowing. Its salt marshes are the cradle of “Le Saunier de Camargue” sea salt. The savoir-faire of the cultivation and harvest of the salt has been passed down from generation to generation.
Even today, Le Saunier de Camargue’s products are still harvested in their own salt marshes (which cover an area as big as the whole of Paris), sticking to the traditional hand-picking methods.
Fleur de Sel (“the flower of salt”) from the Camargue is made up of individual, slightly damp crystals with a particular grain size and aroma.
