The property was clean comfortable and well equipped and ideally located for exploring Nimes by foot. Close to historic monuments and museums and galleries. In easy reach of a variety of good restaurants. Would advise taking advantage of the secure parking that is 2 minutes walk, parking on the street is expensive, and the streets in this area are narrow. There are supermarkets and Boulangeries within easy walking distance.
Owners are very friendly and helpful. Lots of information in the accommodation but the tourist office adjacent to Les Arenes is worth an early visit. Avignon well worth the effort 40 mins drive. Visit to Carmargue National Park needs planning in advance and research on best way of seeing wildlife. Aigues Morte interesting historically but very 'tourist' orientated and in August very busy. Le Grau du Roi very busy seaside town large selection of nice fish restaurants but very crowded and noisy; definitely a seaside resort. We see there from 11 - 18 August which is an exceptionally busy time in this region.
The apartment is easy to find, thanks to the clear map sent in advance. It's only 20 minutes from Nimes/Garons airport! The studio apartment is located on the ground floor, so one window looks out onto the street, the other opens out onto a courtyard garden. Despite being right in the heart of the old town of Beaucaire (which in itself is charming), it is actually really quiet! The facilities included a kitchen/dining area, complete with hob, microwave, pots and pans, etc. The shower room was compact, though perfectly functional. A TV with Fransat receiver is located in the living/sleeping area. In the communal area, a washing machine is provided with drying racks. It is really nice to sit out in the courtyard garden and relax, occasionally meeting other residents (a total of two flats above, and a further studio next door. The hosts are friendly, accommodating, and make you feel very welcome. So why only 4/5? I hadn't realised that the sleeping arrangements were on a sofa bed, which needs to be made up each day after a busy day sightseeing which was a bit of a pain. I would also have liked a small cooling fan just to ease the temperature at night time. Otherwise, I wouldn't hesitate to stay either in Beaucaire nor here, in the property run by Jean-François and Philippe who have a fantastic set of apartments at your disposition!
