Make a holiday home or cottage in Gard your home away from home

Gard, France

Gard is a department in southern France, in the unspoilt rural region of Languedoc. Gard, France is a beautiful department, with stunning Mediterranean beaches, dramatic gorges running through the hills, and small stone villages basking in the summer sun. Gard is also steeped in tradition having been a Roman stronghold, and the local art, music and delicacies all have very distinct local flavours. Taking a holiday home in Gard gives you the freedom, space and privacy to relax and explore this wonderful area at your own pace.

Things to do in Gard, France

The Mediterranean beaches at the southern tip of Gard are very popular. A Gard cottage rental or a Gard rental villa in the medieval walled town of Aiges-Mortes will let you enjoy not only the history of this part of Gard, but also the sweeping beaches and modern resorts of Le Grau du Roi, Port Camargue and La Grande Motte.

Being a rural department, there is some fantastic walking and hiking to be enjoyed, with forested hills and dramatic gorges. There are some famous walks available from a cottage in Gard, arriving at the Pont du Gard in Nimes, and details of these can be found in tourist offices all around the department. Gard also offers exhilarating climbing in the Cevennes Mountains as well as mountain biking, horse riding in oak forests and canoeing in the Gorges du Gardon.

Cultural events, especially revolving around the music of Gard, are often held in Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres, and at these festivals, those in self-catering holiday villas in Gard can stock up on local delicacies and wine.

The city of Nimes is world famous for the Roman architecture. Most famous is the Pont du Gard, a 2,000 year old Roman aqueduct. It was the biggest bridge ever built by the Romans, and to get a real sense of the size of it, why not try swimming underneath! There is also the best of the 70 remaining amphitheatres and a Roman temple in Nimes, which are well worth investigating. The controversial modern art museum of Carre d'Art is a must see for any lover of contemporary art.

The Cevennes National Park area is in the Mountains of Cevennes. The park is a wonderful area to relax and slow down whilst on holiday in Gard. The Aven Armand Cave is in the park, and bulls and flamingos can be seen grazing the delta of the Rhone.

The apartment is not only comfortable, the decor is also chic with artistic touches throughout particularly the beautiful upholstered chairs dotted about. The free wi-fi comes in handy. If there are more than two of you staying the sofa bed is incredibly comfortable , spacious and easy to assemble as a bed. The hosts are caring and pleasant and any problems are sorted out very quickly. I would certainly recommend this property to other people.

Well appointed house with a big kitchen and plenty of kitchen equipment. Outside areas a quite small which we imagine could be quite cramped for 5. Fine for the two of us. We really enjoyed the library of books. House is in a great location in side road of the village. Village well appointed with baker, butcher, wine shop, small grocery stores , weekly market and several restaurants. Added bonus is the train station which we used several times. Walking in the area is varied and there are lots of good walks of varying lengths. Plenty of river bathing places . Slightly further afield visit Nimes Coliseum and Pont du Gard.

The house works well and as the owners live on the property, they are within easy reach. All bedrooms are good and spacious and the house was nice and cool despite 30 degrees or more outside. The internet works to perfection in all areas of the house. In term of living room space - it is very advantageous when you can eat outside as it was a bit packed in the kitchen when we were all eating there (we were 11). However, we had 2 meals inside, the rest of time we were on the patio. The house has a patio in front of the house but no terrace on the back. The view from the patio is towards the gate/parking area and not the grass. All access to the property will go past the patio. There is two appartments on the back of the house and they are connected to the garden. You have to cross a stone area to come to the garden from the house. All 3 houses are sharing the pool. It worked very well for us and the shared pool is reflected in the price. We found the owners very accomodating and profesional and the area is full of sites to visit. It was extremely easy to walk to the local baker and boutcher and whilst Generac is not a beatiful little town, we found the locals very polite and helpful with a very good restaurant as well as good pizza. We would be happy to revert.
