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.

The owners were really welcoming, could speak in french or english, and added nice touches like checking if we had a nice day, providing gift bags of shower gel and shampoo, and bottles of water by the bed, and bringing us fresh eggs which were delicious. It was easy to find, there was plenty of parking and the location was perfect for us, we will be going back.

The pool is beautiful and the children loved running round the garden. There are plenty of places to sit outside, both in sun and shade, and the sitting room is large and comfortable. The area was one we didn't know, and has been a real discovery, particularly canoeing on the nearby river. We would love to go back.

Naturally, the main attraction is the opening roof and we enjoyed effectively having outdoor meals with the convenience of being right next to the kitchen. The roof itself is operated by pulling on a rope and is a little crudely made, so it occasionally needs a few attempts to close, and requires someone of reasonable size to operate it, but we managed fine. The village is well situated for day trips to numerous places, but has few amenities itself: there is an excellent bakery in Uzès but nothing more local. Sylvie and her family were very helpful, thankyou for making our stay a pleasant one.
