                                      well presented House with excellent pool

                                      5 of 5
                                      Very convenient for Nimes centre (5 minutes by car) yet close to the motorway giving access to the coast. Well furnished and clean. Lots of different areas around the house to relax and sunbathe. Large pool. Regarding Beaches we found the beach at La Grande Travers to be the best. Our two 17year olds were very pleased to see the Black Keys perform at the Arenes which often has well known artists performing there. Canoeing was requested - we used one of the many companies this one based in Collias. Whilst the rest of the party paddled off to the Pont Du Gard my wife and I had lunch at the Hostellerie Le Castellar I only mention this because the food was outstanding, if you're in the vicinity it comes highly recommended. Finally Helene the lady that looks after the property was extremely helpful and a great asset to the owner.
