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.

                                                              Therese has created a lovely villa, which is nicely decorated and maintained to a high standard throughout. The villa has all you need for a restful holiday and what was great for us, was the easy 15 minute walk into Avignon. The garden is beautifully landscaped and a really peaceful place to sit. Having Lidl barely 5 minutes walk away, with its fresh croissants and pain aux chocolats baked daily was very convenient. We didn't use the bicycles but it would be so easy to cycle into Avignon and then have a great day out cycling around the island. It really is a city that provides for safe cycling in a big way. It also helped that France was enjoying a l'ete Indien, which meant that the weather was perfect for sightseeing at the traditional holiday spots. As it was so late in the year the Palais des Papes, Pont du Gard, ochres village and Mont Ventoux were all wonderfully quiet and peaceful to wonder around. Therese was very helpful and between us we managed to converse with my attempt at French and Therese's better grasp of English! I would highly recommend this villa for anyone who wants to visit Avignon and the surrounding area.

                                                              seductive and secluded rustic idyll

                                                              It is hard to imagine that such a tranquil property could exist close to the amenities that make any holiday enjoyable. This property lives up to the description provided by the owners - and also has much more to offer! There are attentive local cleaners and groundsmen who can answer most questions put to them, and the property is extremely well maintained. The ultimate question a prospective visitor could ask might be - would you return? I have for 4 years! If you go, you will see why!
