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.

Places to holiday in Gard, France

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.

Weather in Gard, France

Summers in Gard are long and warm. Temperatures are above 20°C from early spring until mid autumn, which means that walking or fishing holidays can be taken from a Gard holiday rental or villa long after the main tourist crowds have left the area.

A BEAUTIFUL HOME IN A FABULOUS LOCATION 5 of 5 This is the second time myself and my husband and our, 2 German Shepherd dogs have stayed at La Grange and we had yet another fantastic holiday there. The house is ideally located in the centre of La Roque sur Ceze, a very beautiful hill top village surrounded by stunning countryside and only 10 minutes walk to La Cascades, stunning natural waterfalls. However, the best thing about the location of the farmhouse is that it is located next door to ' La Ceze' Restaurant, an outstanding restaurant run by Philippe and Karine, who are just the best possible hosts.The service is superb and the food is some of the best we have ever tasted and is without doubt, in our opinion, the best restaurant not just in La Roque sur Ceze but in the whole region. In fact we enjoyed eating in the restaurant so much that we ate there every evening while we were there, that the restaurant was open!!! ( a total of 12 nights of our 14 night stay!!!) Every meal was delicious, but our favourite was undoubtedly Le Cote de Beouf!!! Also the deserts are to die for!!! The house itself has a very contemporary feel to it. It is all open plan on the ground floor with a large well equipped kitchen and dining area and a lovely lounge area. Upstairs there are 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms. Also the cleanliness in the house is of a very high standard. The pool and garden area is fully enclosed, so great for us with our dogs. The house would be good to rent at any time of year as it also has a huge log burner in the lounge to use in the winter months and is very close to Bagnols sur Ceze and Goudargues were there are restaurants, shops and other facilities that are open all year round. Lionel, the owner, yet again could not have been more welcoming and did everything he could possibly do to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Thank you Lionel for helping to make our stay at the La Grange so special and memorable. If you are thinking of booking this property for a holiday, do not hesitate book it!!! You will not be disappointed....
