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.

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.

Spotlessly clean, well equipped and very quiet belying its fantastic central location. Gerard was welcoming, pleasant & helpful and easily contactable in the event of any problem (although we didn't have any, other than my husband managing to mess up the TV, something Gerard took in his stride, offering to come in to sort it out almost immediately). For us, the location was great; bars, restaurants & shops were only 2 steps away and best of all, there is a bakery 2 doors down, which opens at 6 o'clock in the morning and makes very good bread & pastries. In addition, the great market (Wed & Sat) is a couple of minutes walk from the flat The only (very) slight blemish was that parking very close wasn't that easy and I think it could be a problem in high season as parking is at a premium in Uzes then. However, Gerard does give details of suitable car parks when booking (and some of those are free). We would recommend this property to people wanting a short stay in Uzes - I think it is a little too small for a long period and has no outside space - as it is really well situated, comfortable & secure.
